Recycling Guidelines

KC Disposal will provide you with a 65 gal recycle cart to use while you have our service (it will have a green lid). The recycle cart is required for our services. Recycle that doesn’t fit inside please put it in a small container or box and cardboard can be cut to 2′ x 2′ sections and tied with string or twine and set on the ground next to the cart for pick up.
