Recycling Upgrade

St. Johns County Recycling Getting an Upgrade – In June, 2015, service providers will begin delivering the new single stream collection carts in unincorporated areas of St. Johns County.

  • The carts take up the same amount of space as current bins, just taller for more volume. (Smaller carts are available by request made to your service provider.)
  • The carts have wheels, making them easy to roll to the curb; and lids to keep animals out and cut down on wind-blown trash.
  • No sorting! All recyclables mix together in the cart.
