The City of Chubbuck is offering recycling services to any resident who wishes to participate. Each participating household will receive a green 96-gallon recycling cart. Recycling carts are emptied either on the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays (East Chubbuck: see map below) or 2nd and 4th Tuesdays (West Chubbuck: see map below) of each month, with no service on a 5th Tuesday.

Each recycling cart will have a charge of $5.00 per month for this service.

Recycle carts with non-recyclable material will not be collected. The city does not offer return service. If your cart is not emptied due to not being placed out on time, or for having non-recyclable items inside, it will not be emptied until your next scheduled service date.
