The City of Mt. Shasta, in partnership with the Siskiyou Opportunity Center and John Smith Sanitation, is proud to offer the Blue Bag Recycling Program.
How does the Blue Bag Program work?
- All recyclable items can be co-mingled in the blue bags provided by the City.
- Place your filled blue bags at the curb (3 bags maximum) alongside your trash receptacles by 7:00 A.M. on your regular trash pickup day, on or immediately following the first Monday of each month (see 2018 Recycling Schedule and 2019 Recycling Schedule)
- Replacement blue bags will be provided to you for the next month by John Smith Sanitation.
What can be put in the blue bags?
- Household Plastic – #1 to #7 (Please note exceptions on updated list, below)
- Aluminum Cans (cat food cans are acceptable)
- Glass (except window glass and drinking glass; and no broken glass please!)
- Aluminum Foil/Pie Tins (Clean)
See full list updated as of August 23, 2015.
Please Note: Blue bags that contain items not on the above list (i.e., trash) will not be picked up.
