Pilot Program- Once Monthly Pick-up for Outer Neighborhoods

Pilot Program- Once Monthly Pick-up for Outer Neighborhoods

Hello Everyone!

Recycling Works is testing out once-monthly pick-up for the East Missoula, Grant Creek, Captain John Mullan, and Miller Creek neighborhoods.

If you live in one of these neighborhoods, look out for both a call and email from Recycling Works to update you on this change.

All other neighborhoods will remain on bi-weekly pick-up as we test out this pilot.

Our research shows that once monthly pick-up will be both beneficial for customers (lower pricing) and the environment (less emissions from driving).

We will, however, have to cease compost pick-up for these pilot customers. As always, we recommend Missoula Compost Collection to continue getting pick-ups for your organic material.

Here is the pricing breakdown:

5 gallon: $8.50/month

10 gallon: $12.50/month

20 gallon: $17.50/month

35 gallon: $22.50/month

    Why is the pick up fee so much less for this pilot program?

    • Sarah Nesci says:

      Hi Annabelle,

      The fee is less because we only pick-up from these pilot customers once a month versus the every-other-week pick-ups that all of our other customers receive.

      Thank you,

  2. I would love for you to pick up my glass iced tea bottles once a month. I.live in East Missoula. Will you also accept plastic water.bottles? I am a disabled senior and wonder about your rates.

    • Sarah Nesci says:

      Hi Kari Ann,

      We can definitely pick-up those glass iced tea bottles, but we cannot accept plastic at this time. We have started a once-monthly pick-up for East Missoula so our rates are as followed:
      5 gallon: $8.50/month

      10 gallon: $12.50/month

      20 gallon: $17.50/month

      35 gallon: $22.50/month

      Please feel free to call us at (406)215-4650 and we can talk more about the service if you’d like.

      Thank you,
      Recycling Works Inc.

    If I live in Missoula but outside of your pick-up locations can I bring my glass containers to you?

      Hi Ashley,

      If you’d like to email me (sarah@recyclingworksmt.com) with your address, I bet you’re in one of our once-monthly pilot locations for pick-up if you are within Missoula limits.
