Borrow a Recycling Container from the County

Recycling container

The Department of Public Health and Environment provides recycling containers on loan for collecting bottles and cans. This program is designed to serve small, single-day gatherings such as graduation parties, family reunions, block parties, and similar events. 
The containers fold down for easy transport and storage and the bags provided hold more than 200 mixed bottles and cans. Since full bags can be replaced with a new bag, the container never fills up. Full bags of recyclables may be placed with regular recycling pickup (remove and discard plastic bag) or be taken to the Environmental Center in Woodbury during business hours.

Get a Container

  • Complete our Online Reservation Form.
  • Provide as much advanced notice as possible as container use is very high in the summer months and county staff will need to coordinate with the distribution sites.
  • Pick up the containers at the listed locations. Containers must be returned to the same site borrowed no later than the date indicated on the reservation form.
