Q. Can I put out extra glass on my pick-up day?

After your first pick-up, extra glass can still be left out by your bin but you’ll be charged $.50 per extra gallon


Q. My bin is missing.  How do I get a replacement? 

A. Please call (406)-215-4650 or email info@recyclingworksmt.com to schedule a bin replacement. The first replacement bin is free, but any subsequent replacements will result in a charge of $9 or $19 to your account, depending on bin size. 

If you live in a high foot-traffic area, we can work with you to make adjustments and avoid those pesky bin-thieves.
