Maplewood's Recycling Program: Maplewood has a four-year contract with Tennis Sanitation for its residential recycling program. All single and multi-family properties are included in the program. Tennis collects recyclables at the curb from City-supplied recycling bins for single family homes and most townhome and manufactured home properties. Tennis supplies recycling carts for multi-family properties, which are placed in designated areas of each property. Recycling fees are billed on a property owner's water bill. The monthly recycling rate for single and multi-family units is $2.94 per month. Click here to view the Recycling Guide.
Recycling Containers: The City supplies 18 gallon recycling bins to residents for its recycling program. In March 2014, the City is converting its recycling program to the collection of recyclables in carts. Visit the recycling announcement webpage for information on the cart roll out project.
