Recycling Centers

Bartlett encourages its residents to reuse, reduce and recycle whenever possible in order to minimize the amount of solid waste that is disposed of at the landfill which helps keep the City's solid waste cost down. The City recycles approximately forty percent of the solid waste generated by its residents. This accomplishment is made possible by our resident's participation in our recycling centers and our yard waste program.

In an effort to make recycling at our three recycling centers easy for our residents the City offers single stream recycling. Single stream recycling is a system in which all recyclables can be placed into a single bin for recycling.
