The City of Decatur has begun accepting an expanded list of recyclable items that can all be mixed together in your recycling receptacle without sorting. For no additional charge, you can request delivery of a new 65-gallon recycling cart. 

o The program makes it easier than ever by allowing residents to mix it all together ELIMINATING the need for sorting.

o Use your current recycling receptacle until your new cart is delivered.

o The cart program only applies to single family households and multi-family dwellings up to six units that have confirmed addresses within the City of Decatur corporate limits.
