Garbage & Recycling

Was your recycling not collected?

If your recycling was left at the curb, please be sure it has been properly sorted and does not contain any garbage or loose plastic bags. If you are unsure if something can be recycled, try our customized material search below to find out what goes where.

Delta provides residential garbage, recycling and Green Can collection service to all single-family residential households. We also provide recycling service to apartment and condo complexes in Delta.
