Residential Curbside Recycling

Some garbage hauling companies provide curbside recycling programs that can be confusing and challenging for the resident. CDS makes every effort to make recycling easy, and convenient for our residential trash customers, encouraging more of our customers to participate. Regular recycling practices can help to preserve our natural resources by reuseing and reducing.

It is important to know that Community Disposal Service is not an actual recycler, we pick it up and haul it to reputable recycling centers. These licensed centers have large operating costs, and delivering clean and proper products is important to keep costs down, which in turn, help us provide our customers with low recycling service fees. We have partnered with the top licensed recycling centers in Oakland, Genesee, Livingston, Lapeer, Saginaw, and Shiawassee counties to provide the most flexible recycling services in your area. We strive to make recycling easy and intuitive so we can work together for the betterment of the environment.
