Needles and syringes should not be placed in the garbage or recycling carts. Also, certain household wastes are not accepted in your roll-out cart, because they can be hazardous to our environment and our collection workers.
Recyclables will be picked up every other week from the curb on your regular garbage collection day. The City is providing 95-gal recycling carts to residents. These carts belong to the City and must remain with the house they have been assigned to. If you move, leave the cart behind.
The City of High Point and Guilford County offer multiple sites for city residents to drop-off their old electronics. We will take all computer equipment (desktops, laptops, printers, etc.) and televisions off your hands, as well as most electronic items with a cord for recycling!
