Residential & Commercial Recycling

The City of Shawano provides curbside collection for all residents and small commercial business.  Recycling is picked up every other week on your normal collection day.  All items should be placed inside the City issued recycling cart for automated curbside pickup.

  • Place all recycling loosely in your automated cart. NO PLASTIC BAGS including plastic shopping bags. There is no need to separate paper from glass, aluminum, plastic and tin. 
  • Please do not place trash or yard waste in your recycling cart.
  • All cardboard should be cut to fit inside the cart.
  • Because garbage and recycling are picked up by separate trucks, please keep your recycling container 4 feet away from any obstructions such as your garbage container, mailbox, utility poles, trees and parked cars.
  • Please have your automated cart to your curb by 7 am on your collection day.  If your cart is put out after 7 am it may not be collected.
  • All recycling & garbage must fit into your cart with the lid closed.  For extra recyclables, you may:  save for a future pick-up day, ask a neighbor if they have extra room in their cart, or bring to the Shawano Landfill and Recycling Center located at 1099 Rusch Road, Shawano - Monday through Friday 7 am to 3 pm and Saturdays from 8 am to Noon.  (The second Saturday in November until the second Saturday in April.)
