Grand Rapids Recycling Collection

Everkept makes it easy for you to be environmentally friendly! At EverKept, our no-sort, single-cart Grand Rapids recycling program makes it simple and easy for you to help clean up our planet — one bottle, can, bag or newspaper at a time.

Recycling does not have to be time consuming and inconvenient. Simply place your recyclable plastic, paper, glass or metal items in your EverKept recycling cart and we will do the rest.

Grand Rapids curbside recycling collection occurs every other week on your trash collection day, and includes a 96-gallon plastic cart on wheels. Your recycling cart even comes with a yellow lid to make sorting your trash and recyclable materials even more convenient.
