Get back in the groove of recycling!Curbside recycling pickup starts October 3 for Santa Rosa County

“We are glad to see the recycling service available again and want to remind residents to refresh themselves with what can and cannot be recycled,” said Andrew Hill, environmental supervisor with Santa Rosa County. 
Recyclables with the greatest impact are bottles, cans, and paper. Non-recyclable garbage placed in recycling bins increases the cost of the recycling process and in turn will increase the cost of garbage and recycling collection service. The following items are NOT accepted for recycling at this time:

Plastic grocery bags – however most grocers accept these for recycling

Wax-coated items – ice cream containers, milk cartons, juice boxes, etc.

Aerosol cans 

Food waste

Garbage or yard waste

Garden hoses

Window blinds



Bedding or linens

Carpeting or rugs

Construction materials

The following clean and dry items are accepted for recycling:

Glass all colors

Newspaper and inserts

Magazines and catalogs

Junk mail and envelopes 


Phone books

Office and school papers (colored paper) 

Paper grocery bags

boxboard (cereal, cake and cracker boxes, etc.) 

Pizza boxes

Plastic produce clamshells 

Plastics No. 1 through 7

Plastic milk jugs, bottles, and containers 

Aluminum cans and lids 

Pet food cans and dry pet food bags 

Aluminum foil baking pans

Balls of aluminum foil; foil pie tins 

Tin and steel cans and lids

Metal pots, pans and cookie sheets 

Cardboard egg cartons

In addition to curbside recycling, Santa Rosa residents can dispose of household hazardous waste (HHW) year-round, Monday through Saturday, 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., at the HHW center at the entrance to the Central Landfill, 6337 Da Lisa Road in Milton. 
According to the EPA, recycling benefits the environment by reducing the amount of waste sent to the landfill, conserving natural resources and reducing greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to global climate change.

Additionally, consistent recycling helps sustain the environment for future generations and create new well-paying jobs in the recycling and manufacturing industries in the United States.
