Waste and Recycle

The City of Pilot Point contracts with IESI for garbage pickup in the City.


WE RECYCLE

Recycling-It’s never been easier! Recycling has changed over the past years, simplifying the process so that everyone can take part. Recyclable materials do not need to be stored, just placed in your recycle cart. All of the recycling efforts are adding up to thousands and thousands of new products made of recycled materials. Recycling conserves natural resources, saves landfill space, and saves energy. Recycling improves our environment, our quality of life and our planet’s future.

BOTH THE CITY OF PILOT POINT & IESI ENCOURAGE YOU TO RECYCLE BY PLACING RECYCLABLE MATERIALS IN YOUR BLUE RECYCLE CART. THIS INCLUDES:

RESIDENCES ON MAIN STREET AND NORTH WILL BE PICKED UP ON WEDNESDAY OF EACH WEEK.

RESIDENCES SOUTH OF MAIN STREET WILL BE PICKED UP ON THURSDAY OF EACH WEEK.
