Residential Curbside Recycling

Curbside recycling is a voluntary program and collected on the same day as trash and yard waste.  Using this program, however, will reduce the amount of trash thrown away.  You are also creating jobs in Fulton at Kingdom Projects, a non-profit sheltered workshop that hires disabled workers.

Placing recyclables at the curb:

– Use clear or transparent bags, or open-top cardboard or paper containers than can be recycled.

– Blue recycling carts are also available from the Solid Waste Department in three sizes – 45, 65, and 96 gallons. A $1 fee will be added monthly to a customer’s utility bill.

– You can put aluminum and steel cans, plastic soda and milk containers, in the same bag.

– Put all papers, magazines, books, telephone directories, paper sacks, and any other paper in a clear bag.

– Break down all cardboard boxes and put them in a bag or tie them up with twine or string and place them at the curb.

– Bags and bundles must be placed between curb and sidewalk, or as close as possible on streets without a curb.  They can be right next to your yard
waste, but leave at least three feet between your recyclables and your 90-gallon trash cart.

– Have bags on curb by 6 a.m. on your trash day.

Recycling Used Motor Oil Curbside in Fulton

Fulton residents who change their own oil can dispose of their drainings through the recycling program.  Used oil will be picked up on your regular recycling day.

  • Oil must be placed in a container with a screw-on lid.  Reuse oil bottles or plastic milk jugs or the like.  No glass containers.
  • Oil mixed with anything- thinners, solvents, antifreeze, etc. will not be accepted.
  • No antifreeze, solvents, herbicide or pesticide containers will be accepted.
  • Two (2) gallons maximum may be placed on the curb for collection each week.

The Fulton Freecycle Network is open to all who want to “recycle” that special something rather than throw it away. Whether it’s a chair, a fax machine, a piano or an old door, feel free to post it. Or maybe you’re looking to acquire something yourself, just post a “wanted” request. Nonprofit groups are encouraged to participate too!
One constraint: everything posted must be free, legal, and appropriate for all ages.

Kingdom Projects Recycling Drop-Off

The City of Fulton partners with Kingdom Projects, a sheltered workshop for disabled adults, for most recycling efforts.  There are five drop-off locations in Fulton where residents can take recyclable items.
