Palm Springs Recycling

Your recycling day is the same day as your waste pick-up. Please check the pick-up map online.

Residents are asked to separate their recyclables from other non-recyclable waste and set out for "once-a-week" collection. Simply place your recyclables in the blue recycle cart and place at the curb by 6:00 am.

Residential Recycling

The blue cart is the place for ALL of your recyclables. You don't need to separate paper from plastic, glass from metal, etc. Just place everything recyclable (including cardboard) into the blue cart.Recycling Blue Cart

On collection day, roll your cart to the pavement edge with the handle facing away from the street. Please keep the container at least 4 feet away from cars, light poles and mail boxes.

We collect your commingled recyclables with clean-burning CNG-powered vehicles and transport the recyclables to a Materials Recovery Facility where they are separated and then are shipped off to be processed into new products.


Recycling Containers

The first cart is provided free of charge. A second cart is available for an additional fee. To get more information, simply call our "Recycle Hotline" 760-327-SAVE.

Why the Need to Recycle?

Palm Springs currently disposes approximately 25,000 tons of waste per year. In 1989, California State bill AB-939 mandated that all communities divert 50% of their waste by the year 2000. PSDS has continued to meet that goal and continues to promote recycling.
