Adams Sanitation Residential Recycling Service Cart

Adams offers curbside recycling with pickup every other week, for $7.50 per month. 

Brand new 96-gallon roll carts with yellow lids will be provided. If you are in our RapidCart delivery zone – you”ll get your cart in two business days or less! If you live in Okaloosa County, you can expect your cart in 3-5 business days!

Every other week service with a 96-gallon can will allow you to recycle more material than twice-weekly service with a traditional 15-gallon tote bin and allows us to keep the price as low as possible.

For our senior customers living in Okaloosa County, we can provide a smaller 65-gallon recycling can to match your 65-gallon trash can upon request. 

Please remember to have your recycling cart out for pick by 6am on your pickup day!

Will my recycling actually get recycled?

YES!

Currently, the Baker transfer station does not have a tipping floor to offload full trucks of recyclables. Until such a facility becomes available in Baker the material will be delivered either to the Fort Walton Beach transfer station or to the Santa Rosa County transfer facility. From there, the recyclables will be taken to the Emerald Coast Utility Authority’s Recycling Recovery Center in north Escambia County.

We took a tour recently and were impressed with their efforts. The recyclables are sorted using a mix of automated, mechanical, and human processors.

Approximately 75-80% of the material that makes it to the Recovery Center is ultimately recycled.

The recovered materials are then baled and sold to be repurposed into new products. The majority of the recovered materials are sold to American manufacturers. The glass is crushed and given free to a fiberglass insulation manufacturer. Even though there is no financial return from the glass, the material is not taking up valuable landfill space.
