Curbside recycling services are not available in Blue Springs. However, the city does participate in several regional programs aimed at the reduction and proper disposal of waste of all types. These programs or organizations include:
Recycling at Work
Give your business a competitive edge and reduce your bottom line by implementing waste reduction practices at work. Learn how to implement your own "green" program at work and for helpful tips and resources view Waste Reduction at Work (PDF).
Glass food and beverage container recycling is available at Price Chopper North (1305 NW 7 Hwy., Blue Springs) in the large purple recycling bin. Go to ripple glass for additional recycling locations and information.
Containers should be rinsed but labels do not need to be removed. Glass does not need to be sorted by color. Plate glass and dishes such as pyrex glass cannot be accepted. Price Chopper sells in-home glass collection recycling bins for $4.99. This makes it easier for you to collect and transport glass containers to your preferred glass recycling collection location.
