Recycling

RecyclingRecycling helps create the products we use everyday -- from soda containers to writing paper, carpet and automobiles. Recycling mines valuable materials out of garbage to make new products. That's what makes it one of the oldest environmental practices and one of the most beneficial. More importantly, recycling benefits not only the individual, but the community and the planet -- click here to read the Top 10 Reasons to Recycle.

According to the EPA, recycling:

  • Conserves natural resources to help sustain the environment.
  • Reduces the need for landfilling and incineration.
  • Saves energy and prevents pollution caused by the extraction and processing of virgin materials.

RecyclingResidents in Grapevine have many options for recycling garbage, paper, plastics, glass, electronics, batteries, hazardous waste, and more. These include weekly curbside pickup, single stream dumpster, and annual collection events. The City of Grapevine greatly increased its recycling efforts by switching from 18-gallon recycling bins to 65-gallon recycling carts for residential collection in October '12. In addition, 95-gallon recycling carts are available upon request.

There is a single 30-yard closed top roll-off dumpster for SINGLE STREAM recycling. This dumpster was selected instead of adding a paper-only dumpster and still protects the paper goods from the elements. It is accessible 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to Grapevine residents. The dumpster is located in the lot across from the Grapevine Municipal Service Center, 501 Shady Brook Dr, Grapevine.

Keep Grapevine Beautiful hosts annual recycling events for Grapevine residents:

  • America Recycles Day - Held every November, this is an opportunity for Grapevine residents to recycle electronics, printer cartridges, books, batteries, mattresses, toys, tools, glasses, metal, and more.
  • Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day - One of our most popular recycling events, this March event allows Grapevine residents to safely dispose of paint, oil, pesticides, liquids, ammunition, fire extinguishers, radioactive material, and commercial waste.
  • Post-Holiday Tree Recycling Event - held the first weekend after New Year's day, residents can recycle Christmas trees, receive bags of mulch, dispose of all the holiday packaging and paper, as well as recycle old electronics, toys and household goods.
