We are on the path to becoming a cleaner, greener community!

To make recycling easy, the City of Mobile uses a single-stream method meaning citizens are not required to sort their recyclables.

We do NOT take the following items: 

  • Glass (as of April 1, 2024)
  • Styrofoam
  • Bows 
  • Gift Bags with bows, plastics, etc.
  • Plastic bags
  • Most wrapping paper is NOT accepted

The City of Mobile staff are working to ensure you have a great recycling experience. Please kindly remember them as they provide this important service.
