Recycling collection is provided every other week.. Place recyclable items at curbside by 7 a.m.
Absolute Waste Removal observes the following holidays only: New Year's Day, Memorial Day, July 4th, Labor Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas. This will result in a one day delay of your garbage or recycling pickup.
Residents are asked to place recyclables for curb side collection in a cardboard box or plastic tote/container for collection. When placing your recyclables in the container, please place aluminum, tin, plastic, and glass at the bottom and cardboard/paper on top.
We ask residents to review the limit of items that can and cannot be recycled as any container that contains contaminated items will be collected and disposed of as garbage and NOT recycled. Items placed in plastic bags WILL NOT be collected.
See below "What can I recycle" section for details on what can be recycled and how to package items.
Self-Serve Recycling Center
Clear Lake offers a self-serve recycling center for its residential customers. These handy dumpsters are located at the City's Public Works facility at 1419 2nd Ave South. Residents are reminded that the same rules for recycling apply to the self-serve recycling dumpsters as well.
