Single Stream Recycling Services

Service starts at 4AM every weekday morning

Recycling is picked up every week on the same day as your trash pick-up, Recycling must be curbside either the night before or by 4:00 am the morning of service.  LMR Disposal will also offer a 65-gallon recycling container with all weekly trash services, except the 35-gallon can service. Please ask the office staff when inquiring about service.

Single stream (also known as “fully commingled” or “single-sort”) recycling refers to a system in which all paper fibers, plastics, metals, and other containers are mixed in a collection truck, instead of being sorted by the depositor into separate commodities (newspaper, paperboard, Corrugated fiberboard, plastic, glass, etc.) and handled separately throughout the collection process. In single stream, both the collection and processing systems are designed to handle this fully commingled mixture of recyclables, with materials being separated for reuse at a materials recovery facility.

Just as a reminder, the recycle centers LMR utilizes do not accept any type of plastic bags. Recycling in plastic bags is considered contaminated and will not be taken.

Proponents of single stream note several advantages:

  • Reduced sorting effort by residents may mean more recyclables are placed at the curb and more residents may participate in recycling.
  • Reduced collection costs because single-compartment trucks are cheaper to purchase and operate, collection can be automated, and collection routes can be serviced more efficiently.
  • Greater fleet flexibility which allows single compartment vehicles to be used for refuse or recycling, providing greater fleet flexibility and reducing the number of reserve vehicles needed. To avoid confusing customers, a large sign or banner is sometimes used to distinguish when a refuse truck is being used for recycling.
  • Worker injuries may decrease because the switch to single stream is often accompanied by a switch from bins to cart-based collection.
  • Changing to single stream may provide an opportunity to update the collection and processing system and to add new materials to the list of recyclables accepted.
  • More paper grades may be collected, including junk mail, telephone books and mixed residential paper.


Please have your container at the curb the night before your pickup day.
