Castle Hills has an efficient, highly inclusive Recycling program and all residents are encouraged to participate! Recycling is easy to do at home by placing the accepted items in your blue Recycle bin (or other approved container) and place it out for collection on your designated day.
Collection Information All recycling must be placed out for collection before 7 a.m. on the day of service. Do not mix recycle items with garbage, leaves or other materials. See the Recycling Collection Schedulefor more detailed information.
Recycle Bins If you do not have a blue recycling bin you may purchase one at City Hall for $10 (or $15 including a lid.). You may also use your own 32-gallon empty can as a recycling container. Clearly label the can with the word “Recycle” (or a large "R") and place it out at the curb or in the alley on collection day. Do not mix garbage, leaves, brush, or construction materials with the recycling.
