It’s Good For Me. It’s Good For You. Do More Blue!

Recycling services are modernized and simplified in Clearwater. The city provides single-stream recycling once per week. Clearwater’s service allows you to recycle more and is cleaner, greener, and safer. The improved recycling service makes it easier than ever to become an avid recycler.

Blue Barrels

The city provides each residence with a recycling blue barrel with a lid to keep material dry and to help control litter. This barrel remains the property of the city. The blue barrel is easy to use and navigate. The increased capacity in the blue barrel accommodates the wide variety of materials that are accepted.
