Charlotte (Pray Road and Doane Hwy only) Curbside Recycling

Your recycling collection is referred to as “single-stream” or “comingled” recycling. This means that all recyclables go into your recycling cart together and do not need to be sorted. Materials are sorted at a single-stream sorting facility after collection.

PLEASE NOTE this recycling guide applies only  to Charlotte addresses on Pray Road or Doane Hwy. For other Charlotte addresses, click here.
