Recycling Calendar & Info

We’re able to recycle more products curbside than ever before!  It’s easy!  I have two trash cans (side by side) in my kitchen.  One for trash, one for recycling.  This is something simple and easy that EVERYONE can do to make Wells Branch better.  Please do your part.  Recycle & remind your neighbors!

Recycling pickup only occurs every other week on regular trash pickup days.   To download a calendar for 2015-2016 with recycling guidelines, click HERE.

  1. What are the specifications to utilize the dumpsters during Monthly Clean-up daY? Is oil permissble? What about a couch? Please advise. Thank you!

    1. Yes to both! There should be a list of acceptable items on the MUD website at http://www.wellsbranchmud.com. Turn the oil in to the workers at the maintenance yard as they have a separate container for used oil and just put any other large bulky items in the dumpster. So far as I know, the only restrictions are on older items with refrigerant (freon) in them (freezers, refrigerators, etc.)
