Recycle Right Boca Raton

Recycling Collection

Recycling is collected once a week.

The City of Boca Raton has a two-bin recycling program. The yellow bin is used to recycle paper and cardboard products. The blue bin is for your glass, plastic and aluminum products. For a complete list of recyclable items, please visit the Solid Waste Authority of Palm Beach County or call the City’s Sanitation Department at 561-416-3367.

Please note that the corrugated cardboard must be cut down to 2’ x 2’ pieces and placed in or next to your yellow bin. If you have boxes that are larger than 2’ x 2’ that are not broken down, they will be collected by our bulk service.
