City to begin recycling services with Republic Services

Published 12:00 am Sunday, June 21, 2020

SALISBURY — The city of Salisbury’s Public Works Department will start the transition from Waste Management to Republic Services beginning Monday for residential recycling pickup within the city limits.

From now until July 3, city officials said residents should place their Waste Management recycling green cart with the yellow lid at the curb by 7 a.m. on their scheduled service day. After the green cart is emptied, it should be left at the curb to be collected later that day by Waste Management. Residents will then receive a Republic Service blue cart, which should be delivered the next day.

If residents are out of town during the weeks of June 22 and July 3, residents should put the Waste Management recycling green cart at the curb and leave it there. This will ensure the cart will be collected and replaced during your absence.

Recycling service begins on July 6 under Republic Services. Recycle collection days will remain the same.

Also starting July 6, glass will no longer be collected in the single stream. Glass should be taken to one of the Rowan County drop-off sites or you can place it in the trash.
