Curbside recycling

Seperated binCurbside recycling is available to Fargo's 25,000 residential households (those that pay for residential garbage collection and do not have a commercial garbage dumpster).

Each household will receive a blue container for setting out your recyclables, and each year we will mail you a calendar showing your scheduled pickup weeks and what can be recycled.

You can use small plastic garbage cans, paper bags, or purchased bins/totes from local retailers in addition to the blue bins, as long as the city blue bin is placed out for collection.

How do I recycle if I live in an apartment?

If you live in an apartment or have a dumpster for garbage disposal, you will need to use our recycling drop-off sites; curbside recycling is not available for these customers. 

We appreciate your efforts to conserve and recycle these materials that are a valuable resource for creating new products, and we look forward to the opportunity to serve you.
