The Town of Cornelius is interested in improving its recycling services to our citizens, and understands that some may not have enough recycling capacity with their current blue 64-gallon recycling cart. For those residents who consistently crush or compact aluminum cans, plastic bottles, cardboard boxes, and other recyclable material AND consistently overfill their 64-gallon recycling cart, please contact Town Hall at 704-892-6031 to inquire about switching your current cart for a 96-gallon recycling cart. Please note that there are currently a limited number of these larger carts available, and we encourage you to only contact Town Hall if you meet the stated criteria. Also, the Town appreciates your patience if a delay in cart delivery occurs as a result of high demand.
Recycling that does not meet the above criteria will be tagged as non-compliant. If the resident makes recycle items conform, it will be collected at the next regularly scheduled pick-up. However, you may not leave your container at the curb until the next pick-up date. To ensure pickup, all recyclable materials must be inside the recycling container. Materials outside the recycling container are not guaranteed to be picked up.
