Recycling Carts Begin Arriving

As the City of Olathe is preparing its move to citywide recycling in January, customers whose trash is collected on Mondays will begin receiving their new recycling carts this week. All Monday customers should receive carts in the next five to seven business days. The following week, Tuesday collection customers will begin receiving carts, followed by Wednesday, Thursday and Friday customers. Customers can begin recycling on their regular trash day each week (until January) once the cart is received.

Each customer will receive a standard 65 gallon cart, and since collection will move to every other week in January, customers are asked to tryout the 65 gallon size before requesting a larger or smaller cart or bin.

Each customer will be notified of their collection week starting in January when or before their cart is delivered.
