Orono contracts with Waste Management to provide recycling service for the entire City of Orono.
How to Recycle in Orono
- Please have recycle carts out by 7:00 a.m. we recommend keeping them out until 7:00 pm on your scheduled recycling day.
Note: Pickup times may change depending on circumstances. Sometimes a driver might go down one side of the road and pick up recycling in that neighborhood and return later to do the other half of the street.
- There is no limit to the volume of recyclables you can have collected. If your current single sort cart is insufficient, we offer larger or additional carts at no charge.
- Please contact Orono's recycling coordinator at (952) 249-4600 to make arrangements or report missed pick-ups.
Reminder: If you have a large amount of cardboard, it must be bundled into 3' x 3' x 16" bundles and set out next to your recycling cart. If possible try and fit the cardboard into your new container.
