Bend Garbage & Recycling is committed to waste prevention and recycling in Deschutes County. We offer residential and commercial recycling for customers in our city and rural service areas.
We offer 95-gallon roll carts for commingle recycling. All commingle recycling will go in this cart except for glass. Commingle items include: tin and aluminum, plastic bottles, tubs, jugs, mixed paper, newspaper, magazines and cardboard.
Glass is collected in a separate bin and is only available within the city limits.
All recycling is picked up every-other-week.
Please note that non-recyclable items included in recycling roll cart or glass bin are considered contaminants and can render a load unacceptable for recycling. This causes the container to be dumped as trash, which incurs an additional charge.
Please refer to the Recycling Preparation Guide or call us if you have a question about what is or isn’t recyclable.
Bend Garbage and Recycling Service Area: Generally north of Newport, Greenwood and Highway 20 E, including Saddleback, Tumalo, Whispering Pines, Boonesborough, Cimmaron City and Alfalfa.
