The City of Prescott provides blue recycling containers for each household with a green trash container. All recyclable material must be placed in the container. Please do not bag the recyclable material. These materials will be collected once a week on the same day regular trash collection is scheduled. For easier identification and collection, place the container at the regular collection point with a minimum of 3 feet between the trash container and the recycle container. Please wait until your recycle container is nearly full before placing it out for collection. If you have questions or comments regarding recycling, please contact us at 928-777-1116.
