Recycling

The City of Temple currently offers the following recycling opportunities:
Green Tags
Has your recycle cart not been emptied on pick-up day? Was a green tag placed on your recycle cart?
If the answer is yes, please let us explain. In an effort to reduce the amount of contaminated recyclable materials being picked up, the City of Temple has been placing green tags on recycle carts and not emptying the cart until unauthorized items have been removed.

Unaccepted Items
Please refer to our Curbside Recycling page for details on accepted and unauthorized items in the curbside recycling program. Contaminated recyclable materials must be taken to the landfill, which defeats the purpose of our recycling program. Please help us continue to divert recyclables by properly disposing of items. Contact us 254-298-5725 if you have any questions.
