Recycling and Hazardous Waste



Recyclables are collected weekly and must be placed in furnished recycling bins. Lost, stolen or damaged recycling bins are the responsibility of the property owner. Replacement bins may be purchased at the Alma Municipal Building for a nominal fee. 
Ninety-six (96) gallon carts may also be rented from our solid waste contractor, Republic Services.  Please contact Customer Service at 1-800-878-4626 for more information.

Only accepted and properly prepared items will be collected as part of Alma’s residential recycling program. Recyclables do not have to be separated in the recycle bin.

Please follow the link below for more information about what items can be accepted and how to prepare them: 

Hazardous Waste

The City of Alma, in conjunction with the City of St. Louis, provides an annual household hazardous waste disposal program each year.  Hazardous items such as batteries, paints, pesticides/herbicides and cleaning liquids can be dropped off at a designated location. The household hazardous waste disposal service is only provided to Alma and St. Louis Solid Waste customers.  No direct fee is charged for this service.
Although the collection of household hazardous waste has been traditionally held the first week of May, this year it will be held during the first week of June. 
2019 collection dates are June 4, 5, & 6, 2019. Please follow this LINK for more information.
Call (989) 463-8339 to reserve your drop-off appointment.
