The City of Summit has contracted with a new recycling vendor, Grand Sanitation Service, for household recycling pickup. The new contract and all subsequent changes will go into effect on Friday, July 1, 2022.

The pickup schedule for household curbside collection will change under the new contract. Instead of the current, citywide collection day on Thursday, pickup will now occur five days a week, on the same day as residents’ weekly trash collection. View the trash collection schedule on the city website.

If pickup falls on a holiday or snow day, recycling will be collected the next day, and every collection during that week will move forward one day. Recycling will not be picked up on the following holidays: New Year’s Day, Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas Day.

Household curbside recycling will now operate as a single-stream collection; cardboard and paper items can be placed in the same container as plastic and glass items. Clean and dry recyclable items should be placed in covered containers at the curb. Wet cardboard and paper cannot be recycled.
