How to prepare it

All recycling must be clean & goes loose in the commingle container.

Glass is collected separately from the commingle recycling

How we pick it up

Recycling (and yard debris, if you have that service) is picked up every other week on the same day your garbage is picked up. Click here for our scheduled pickup day in your area.

Depending on the amount of recycling your business generates and the space that is available for our containers, we may provide you with plastic recycle toters or a metal commingle container.

Please contact our sales department at cust2013@wcnx.org for more information.

About Sanipac

With a strong sense of responsibility to be a leader on solid waste issues, Sanipac strives to provide recycling and solid waste services that meet the needs of the citizens in our community as well as public policies set by the City and the State. Toward that end, our Mission Statement drives the company: Making our community a better place to live...Every day!

As a hauler

  • In 1984, implemented residential, curbside recycling two years before required by SB405. From the beginning, we provided this new service twice as often as the subsequent 1986 law required--twice per month as opposed to once a month.
  • In 1990, we were the first company in this area to expand curbside recycling to weekly services, which included a free blue box for convenience, and voluntarily offered this service more than two years before required by SB66.
  • In 2000, with about the same customer base, increased our recycling from 12 million pounds in 1992 to more than 33 million pounds in 1999.
  • In 2001, we began curbside pick up of yard debris in Eugene
  • In 2004, introduced the commingled recycling program with the 90-gallon blue recycling cart
  • In 2007, achieved a new all-time high of 56 million pounds with our commingle recycle program
  • In 2008, began a "subscription" curbside yard debris program in Springfield

Trash, Garbage, Rubbish

With all of the recycling we do, we are often asked, "What goes in the trash cart?" Trash is anything that can't be recycled in the commingle recycling, glass recycling, yard debris cart, or anything that can't be recycled in another manner.

Some examples are: broken glass, plastic containers that have held pesticides, food contaminated items, napkins, tissues, paper plates, diapers, food waste, pet waste, plastic wrap, bags, or packaging.

Items that can NOT go in the trash: Syringes, medical waste, wet paint, chunks of concrete, non-alkaline batteries, and other hazardous materials and chemicals.
