Curbside recycling pick-up is available within the City of Morgantown through your regular trash collector, Republic Services. Recyclables can be set out on the day of regular trash pick-up by the curb in a green recycling bin. Morgantown recycling is picked up the same day your trash is picked up each week.

Republic Services issues residents, for no additional cost, a green 65-gallon cart for the Standard Weekly Recycling Service. Morgantown residents are responsible for the proper care of the carts. Republic Services will maintain ownership of carts and may charge for replacement or repair to carts if resident is found negligent. 

If you are in need of a recycling cart, please contact Republic Services at 304-366-8900 or 800-696-3173.
