Recycling Services

Basehor residents receive a 65-gallon recycling cart with a yellow lid from Waste Management. The recycling poly-cart will be picked up on the normal trash day. Position your recycling cart with the handle facing the house at least 3 feet from the trash poly-cart and 1 foot from the curb. All recyclables should be placed loosely inside the cart, not in bags.

  • Cereal Boxes

  • Newspaper

For guidelines on acceptable recyclables please refer to the yellow lid of the recycling poly-cart or to the Waste Management residential website for a complete detailed list of approved items.
