Single-Stream Recycling Information

Roll-Single-Stream
Single-Stream Recycling has started across Roanoke. Every household in the city can throw all recyclable items together in the same cart.

Recycling collection will be every other week, also on you normal collection day. Depending on where you live, your residence will be on an A Week schedule or a B Week schedule.

The city’s Solid Waste Management Division has been working to identify locations in alleys where the new containers can safely be placed and serviced. As a result of this review, staff has approved and distributed new recycling containers to alleys that are wide enough to accommodate the new containers without interfering with vehicles driving through the alley.

However, there remain a number of alleys that are too narrow to safely accommodate safe vehicle or collection truck passage when the carts are placed for collection. For these locations, curbside recycling collection is not an allowable option primarily due to the on-street parking conditions. Residents with alley recycling collection may participate in single-stream recycling with their existing green bins.
