Recycle Daphne

PW RECYCLING Change of Service Apr2020 HEADER


In an effort to alleviate employee contact with bins & materials and facilitate transition to automated recycling collection, the City Council mandated the following changes to the Daphne recycling program:

• All material must be placed inside a city provided blue rolling recycling cart (recycling bins & loose materials are no longer allowed)

• Your recycling cart should be placed curbside on the same day as your scheduled garbage collection (there will no longer be a separate recycling collection day)

Changes will go into effect Monday, April 13, 2020.

Your city provided recycling bins may be exchanged for a rolling cart. To schedule an exchange or with any other questions, contact Daphne Public Works at 251-620-2100. Thank you for your understanding of our need to protect both our citizens & employees during these challenging times.

(See Resolution 2020-24 adopted April 6, 2020)

Recycle Daphne is a program dedicated to the recycling efforts within the City of Daphne. Did you know that over 3,200 tons of materials were recycled or composted through Recycle Daphne!’s efforts last year? By keeping these materials out of a landfill, we decreased carbon dioxide & methane emissions & saved enough energy to power 7,000 Daphne homes for 36 days!
