Single Stream Recycling
Recycling is a partnership between the City of Urbandale and the Metro Waste Authority. Single stream recycling uses a recycling container like your current trash container. The containers are picked up every other week on your normal garbage collection day. Urbandale collection is the Black Lid Schedule.
To request a different container size or for more information on the single stream recycling program, contact Waste Management at (515) 24-GREEN (244-7336).

Missed collections should be reported to Waste Management at 24-GREEN (244-7336). Urbandale's Public Works Department can not collect missed Curb It! recycling.
MWA offers Curb It! EXTRA for only a $25 delivery charge (or free if picked up) and a $30 annual fee. This annual subscription is only available by calling MWA at (515) 244-0021. Each extra cart requires a $30 annual sticker and there is no limit on the number of carts a resident can order.
