Mayor Curry Announces Return of Curbside Recycling

February 15, 2022
On Tuesday, Mayor Curry announced curbside recycling collection will resume throughout the City of Jacksonville on Monday, April 4, 2022. Since October 4, when curbside recycling was temporarily halted, there’s been progress in all remaining forms of collections.  

The goal of the temporary suspension of curbside recycling was to provide three to six months for waste contractors and City of Jacksonville sanitation crews to respond to labor challenges and reduce missed collections. 

"I'd like to thank the people of Jacksonville for their patience during these challenging and unprecedented times," said Mayor Curry. "Cities across the nation have experienced the labor shortages and impacts from COVID-19 that led us to the difficult decision to pause curbside pickup. I am encouraged that we are now in a position where we can resume curbside recycling services." 

In the weeks until recycling resumes, the City will finalize plans with our contract haulers to ensure a smooth process, and to make certain residential households have the information to effectively recycle those items that don’t need to end up in our landfills. 

Citizens can visit or call (904) 630 – CITY to confirm their recycling, garbage or yard waste collection day.
