Recycling Containers

The City encourages everyone to recycle and provides wheeled recycling containers to our residential customers who choose to participate in the Recycling Program. If you a commercial business, please contact Brommer Sanitation at 722-0631. Below are answers to some questions you may have:

How do I get a recycling container?
  • You can sign up online or call the City Office at 722-0761.
Are there different sizes?
  • Yes, there is a 65 gallon or 95 gallon.  The 65 gallon is the same size as your garbage container.
If I find that my new recycling container is too small or too big for my use, can I switch to a different size?
  • Yes, you may switch containers
Where, or how, do I get my new recycling container?  Can I pick it up?
  • Recycling containers are delivered to your residence.  No, you will not be able to pick up your recycling container 
What is the schedule for recycling pick up?
  • Recycling in Sioux Center is picked up bi-weekly on Wednesdays. You can view a recycling schedule here.
Can I place items (cardboard boxes, etc.) beside my recycling container?
  • No. Because of the automated collection system, items including cardboard boxes, need to be placed inside the recycling container. If you have more recyclables than what you can fit into your container, please deliver to the recycling containers by Brommer Sanitation. View a full list of acceptable recycable materials here.
Do I have to pay for my new 65 or 95 gallon recycling container?
  • There will be no additional cost above the normal solid waste fees
If I move, do I take the recycling container with me?
  • No, as with the solid waste containers, each container will be numbered and assigned to a specific residence
