Beginning November 13, 2023, the City of Mauldin will no longer service handheld recycle bins and will only service roll-away recycling carts.
If you currently have a handheld recycling bin and wish to continue utilizing the recycling service, you will need to purchase a Mauldin-issued roll-away recycling cart by Nov. 13. The cost of a roll-away recycling cart is $50, and there are two ways to place an order:
-Buy a cart online: Click here, scroll down to “TRASH CANS/RECYCLE CARTS” and click on “ORDER TRASH CANS & RECYCLING CARTS”.
-Buy a cart in person at the Business and Development Office at City Hall at 5 E. Butler Rd.
This change is being made because the Public Works Department is transitioning to a full fleet of side-arm trash trucks, which can only pick up roll-away recycling carts. Side-arm trash trucks are the most efficient and effective way for the Department to provide services to the public, in light of the rising cost of labor, recycling and insurance, as well as the number of homes the Public Works Department has to service in a given day.
If you currently have a roll-away recycling cart, you do NOT need to purchase a new one.
