What about recycling

Residential curbside recycling is included in the collection rate for all residential customers whether the service is used or not. While the service is optional, the fee cannot be separated or removed from the residential bill. Residential curbside recycling pick up occurs every other week on the same day as the regularly scheduled garbage service.

Commercial and industrial recycling from businesses is not included in the current franchise agreement. Businesses that source separate their recyclable materials for recycling may contract with a vendor of their choice for hauling and processing of materials just as they can with other dry wastes. If recyclable materials are co-mingled with”garbage” for processing, the entire load is considered “garbage” (per the Washoe County Health Department) and would therefore need to be processed by the franchisee.
