Recycling at Home
Single-Stream RecyclingThe City of Morgan Hill uses single-stream recycling. This means that all of your recyclables go into the same brown recycling cart. Our recycling program accepts cardboard, mixed paper, plastics coded 1 through 7 (no Styrofoam), glass and metal in the brown recycling container. Yard waste, food waste and food soiled paper go in the green organics cart. We also accept used motor oil, oil filters and household batteries. Use Recology's "What Bin?" Tool to find out what goes where. Recycling is collected every other week. If you want to know your service day, visit Recology's website.
Street Sweeping Schedule
Street sweeping in residential areas is scheduled for the day after recycling collection day. Friday customers are served on Monday. There are some exceptions to this sweeping schedule. If your address is on this list, your street will be swept on the Monday following your recycling day. All vehicles, trailers, and other items should be removed from the street on the street sweeping day in order to allow the sweeper access to the curb and gutter.
