The city is no longer distributing curbside recycling bins. We are considering changing our recycling containers. Residents may now purchase large 32 gallon recycling barrels with a lid from the Waltham Recycling Department (165 Lexington St) for $16. These same 32 gallon recycling barrels can also be purchased at Home Depot for $16, however you must clearly mark the barrels as "Recycling Only". Stickers are available at the Recycling Department at no charge. The recycling truck will not pick up recycling containers larger than 32 gallons or that weigh more than 50lbs.
Recycling is picked up every week in Waltham on your regular recycling & trash day.
