Recycling Collection changes for City of Robinson Residents

Effective 11/01/2021, recycling will no longer be an automatic service for City of Robinson residents through Republic Services.  For residents that want to continue recycling, they will need to contact Republic Services directly at 866-309-1859 to enroll.  There will be an $18 quarterly rate added to your current charges.

The current recycle service will automatically be closed by Republic Services on 10/31/2021, and the containers will be removed by the 2nd week of November (unless you sign up to be billed for recycling – then no container removal would occur).  Effective 10/25/2021, Republic Services have started removing recycling containers for residents that have not subscribed and have had their last October pickup.

The service days/weeks are not changing at this time.

As an option for those residents that still wish to recycle but not subscribe for services, they may take acceptable items directly to the Crawford County Solid Waste Recycle Center located on S. Eaton Street in Robinson.
