Paper, Cardboard, & Newspaper

Recycling Pickup:

Allendale is going dual stream! Starting January 1, 2015 Allendale is improving its curbside recycling program by introducing a simple, efficient way to recycle cardboard and mixed paper. On your recycling Thursday, place your cardboard, junk mail, and newspaper in one container at your curb after 6pm the night before.

Newspapers and inserts will be collected on your normally scheduled recycling day. Please see below for pickup information.


Recycling Center:

The Department of Public Works encourages residents to bring any of these items to Allendale’s Recycling Center. At the Recycling Center, labeled bins make recycling quick and easy. Materials should be left loose, and put in the proper, provided container.
