Recycling Reminders for Residents

Refuse and recycling collections are provided by the City of Sun Prairie’s contractor, Pellitteri Waste Systems. Residents residing in the following types of dwellings receive city-sponsored refuse and recycling collections:

  • 4-Plex
  • Condominium
  • Duplex
  • Single-Family Home

Due to an increase in recyclables, we're sending out reminders about recycling guidelines. To be picked up, carts need to be properly placed and lids need to be closed. Overflowing carts can result in the material spilling into the street and may not be collected. Click here to learn more information about proper cart placement.

In addition to proper cart placement, please ensure your materials are placed appropriately for collection. To be considered properly placed, all materials need to be in the recycling cart. Extra recycling may be placed in a clear, plastic bag (up to 32 gallons and no more than 50 pounds) and placed next to your cart. This includes cardboard boxes which must be cut down to fit in the bag or cart. This ensures that all materials stay dry and recyclable. Improperly prepared recyclables will not be collected and notification stickers will be left on carts. 

As a reminder, residents should only put approved recyclables in their cart - you can find the complete list of approved materials here. The City Recycle Center, located at 1798 South Bird Street, accepts materials that are not collected curbside. The facility is available for use by City of Sun Prairie residents receiving city-sponsored automated curbside refuse / recycle collections. You must have a permit/sticker to use the facility. To apply for a permit and learn more about materials accepted at the recycle center, visit the Recycle Center page
