Recycling

Curbside Single Stream Recycling:

Single Stream in:

The change to single stream is happening in the Cities of Detroit Lakes, Frazee, Audubon, and Lake Park in the spring of 2017. Becker County's goal is to work towards a 60% recycling rate and single-stream helps to increase this volume of materials collected. It is good for recycling if ever-increasing amounts of material are kept out of the landfill and sold in good clean condition to the remanufacturing companies that make new products from recycled material.

PLEASE AVOID CONTAMINATION

Do not place non-recyclable items, trash, food scraps or other banned items in the recycling containers. This could cause the entire load to be rejected.
