Recycling is as easy as 1-2-3 in Greensboro!

Greensboro was one of the first cities in the country to adopt automated recycling collection. That makes it easy for residents to recycle in your brown recycling cart -- as long as you remember a few rules about what the city accepts in recycling:

ONLY recycle these items:

  1. Paper & cardboard
  2. Metal food and drink cans
  3. Plastic bottles, tubs, and jugs

All items must be empty, clean, dry, and loose in your recycling can.
