Curbside Recycling


Greenwood Leflore Recycling has rolled out a residential curbside recycling program in the City of Greenwood with grant assistance from the Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality. The program has begun in the North-East and North-West Greenwood and will expand to other neighborhoods based on demand, as funds are available.

Households who choose to participate in the program will pay a one-time $15 fee and will receive two (2) curbside bins. One bin will be used for plastics #1 and #2, aluminum, and steel cans, and the other bin will be used for mixed paper. Corrugated cardboard can be flattened and placed underneath the curbside bins on collection day.

You may also purchase a recycling cart, which have been reduced from $69 to $49.50/each. These are blue recycling cans shaped like garbage cans with large wheels and the city logo on them. To purchase your cart, please visit the City Clerk's office in City Hall. The cart may be used for either paper and cardboard OR plastic recyclables and cans. You can use a recycling bin (with or without the lid) for one of the recycling choices.

Participants will place curbside bins/carts next to their trash cans near the street or alley on a certain day, and Greenwood Leflore Recycling employees will collect recycling on that day. Participants will be responsible for placing bins/carts out on collection day, and bringing them back to their homes for storage the remainder of the week.
