Chicago's Blue Cart Residential Recycling Program


The City's Blue Cart program provides bi-weekly recycling services to single family homes and multi-unit buildings with four or fewer units.  By recycling regularly, you can help reduce the need for landfills, lower disposal costs, reduce pollution and conserve natural resources, such as timber, water and minerals.   


Low-Density Residential Recylcing (single family homes and multi-Unit buildings with four or fewer units)

High-Density Residential Recycling (multi-unit buildings with five or more units are required to have a separate recycling service)
