Recycling Bins can be picked-up at the Utilities office located at 2378 SE Ocean Blvd, Stuart. Customer Service is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Martin County encourages residents to help eliminate contamination in single stream recycling and develop positive recycling habits. Our residents have been “single stream recycling” for many years now. This means that residents are able to easily dispose of recyclables into a single container.
The drawback of this convenience, however, is that it also makes it easier to place the wrong items into the recycling containers. While residents may have good intentions when it comes to recycling, if the wrong items are put into recycling bins it can compromise the entire system and put industry workers health and safety at risk. Check out the flyers below to learn about what you should or should not be throwing in your recycling bin.
