The City of Cottage Grove has three licensed residential trash haulers that are also required to offer recycling pick up. Licensed haulers empty recycling bins placed curbside in conjunction with trash pickup; Tennis Sanitation and Tennis Brothers Sanitation pick up recyclables every week, while Waste Management picks up recyclables every other week.
Each month city staff draws two residence addresses at random and checks to see if their recycling bin is out with recyclable material inside the bin. If it does, the city awards a prize to the resident. It's that simple to qualify for a prize and to help the environment at the same time!
