Labor Day recycling and garbage routes will picked up on Tuesday.
The Sanitation Department is in charge delivering and mantaining trash recepticles as well as collecting and disposing of trash throughout the city. Sanitation trucks collect the trash for both residential and commercial places where it is then transported to the Madison County transfer station located on Airport Road. During a normal month, the department will collect about 25,000 tons of refuse.
Appropriate Trash Items
Because of the complexity of the sanitation trucks, it is important that objects that would cause damage to or interfere with the trucks' operation not be placed in the containers. There are also materials that have potential environmental harm that should not be placed in the containers, such as lead acid batteries. The City of Rexburg has set up a "Call 2 Recycle" box at City Hall. Please drop off any of your old rechargeable batteries and they will be recycled.
Note: The City is no longer accepting glass of any kind at any of the recycling locations. Personal containers and Walmart location included.
