Commercial Recycling Collection

Bend Garbage & Recycling is committed to waste prevention and recycling in Deschutes County. We offer commercial recycling for customers in our city and county service areas.

We offer 1 – 4 yard cardboard containers and 95-gallon blue roll carts for commingle recycling. All acceptable recyclables can go in the blue recycling carts, no sorting necessary. Download the Recycling Preparation Guide for a complete list of acceptable and unacceptable items, or contact our office if you’d like one mailed to you.

Please download our What to Recycle and What to Trash signage – these are great to put on your carts or containers for an easy visual reference.

Glass is collected separately and only offered within the city.


To achieve a successful recycling program it is important to only include materials that are accepted in your local recycling program.

Materials that are non-recyclable or may be recyclable but not accepted in our local recycling program, need to go either as trash or handled a different way or reused, (example plastic grocery bags and other plastic film accepted at participating grocery stores).

Plastic bags of any kind are not accepted in the recycling cart (garbage bags, kitchen bags, zip lock bags, saran wrap, plastic wrap, bubble wrap, etc.). Always use a paper bag to place your shredded paper in before putting in the recycling cart.

If recycling carts or containers are contaminated and cannot go as recycling, they may be disposed of as trash for an additional fee.

Bend Garbage and Recycling Service Area: Generally north of Newport, Greenwood and Highway 20 E, including Saddleback, Tumalo, Whispering Pines, Boonesborough, Cimmaron City and Alfalfa.
