When placing a Simple Recycling bag at the curb, the clearance rule does not apply. The bags can be placed right next to your new recycling cart. Please refrain from placing the bags on top of the recycling cart.
*It should be noted that some condominium and neighborhood associations may have additional regulations.
The City is not able to accommodate the collection of overflow recyclables in the old recycling bins now that the cart system is in place. All recyclable items will need to be placed inside the cart for collection at the curb. In the event of overflow items, the City does offer a year-round drop-off recycling site at 1800 E. State Road.
The carts were initially provided at no cost to residents in fall 2015 and came with a 10-year warranty. After 10 years, if a replacement cart is needed due to wear and tear, it will cost $55 for a 96-gallon cart, $50 for a 64-gallon cart and $45 for a 32-gallon cart. The replacement carts will also come with a 10-year warranty. It's important to note that if a qualifying resident requested a smaller cart in fall 2015 and decide at a later date that the larger cart size is needed, the 96-gallon cart will cost the resident $50.
If you still have questions about the City's curbside recycling program, please contact the East Lansing Department of Public Works at (517) 337-9459 or you can email Cathy DeShambo at firstname.lastname@example.org.

If your schedule permits, you may want to wait and clear your sidewalk after City plows have passed through your street. If it is a significant snowfall, the snowplows will probably be back. Streets are typically opened with one pass through, so that streets can be made passable for drivers as soon as possible. Snowplows may return to open the street curb-to-curb. This is done to clear areas for on-street parking, where it is permitted, and to allow melting snow to drain into catch basins. We regret that you may find some of this snow on your recently shoveled sidewalk and you have to shovel it again.
