“In 2007, the city suffered from the ravages of a devastating flood...In the aftermath, Keep Grapevine Beautiful stepped up...This was the most cohesive, incredible grassroots project ever accomplished and one that will make our citizens proud to live in Grapevine and be part of this unique community.”

Recycling 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:
Residents 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.
