Melissa Recycles!

Both the City of Melissa and Waste Connections (formerly Progressive Waste Solutions) encourage you to recycle by placing paper, cardboard, #1-5 & #7 plastics, glass, aluminum and tin in your blue recycle bin.  Steel products are not accepted for recycling in your blue recycling bin that is picked up every Wednesday (NO PLATE GLASS!!). 

Roll your cart to within 3 ft. of the edge of the street.  Leave the cart with the handle facing your house so that when the cart is lifted the lid opens toward the street.  Please check to see that it is not obstructed by parked cars, trailers, boats, etc.  If you have more than one cart, make sure you leave at least 3 ft. between each cart. 


Acceptable Recycle Items are:

  •  Aluminum cans
  •  Chipboard (cereal boxes, soda boxes, etc.)
  •  Glass bottles or jars
  •  Newspaper
  •  Magazines
  •  Phone books
  •  Plastics #1 - #5 and #7 (milk jugs, juice jugs, laundry detergent jugs etc.)
  •  Junk mail advertisements
