Trash & Recycling Guide

Pick-Up Information

  • Please have trash and recyclables out by 7 a.m. on your collection day only.
  • Trash pickup days do not change, unless, a holiday actually falls on your scheduled pick-up day, otherwise, your pick up day will remain the same day as always.

  • Recycling pickup has changed to bi-weekly on Thursdays.  

  • The only time your collection day will change for trash pickup is if the holiday falls on a Tuesday or Wednesday.   If a holiday falls on your Thursday recycling pickup day, then recycling will be picked up on our next regular business day.

White Goods and Metals

All metals can be put out at curbside on your regularly scheduled trash day only. White goods are stoves, ovens, dishwashers, washers, and dryers. There will be a $40.00 removal charge paid to the Village Clerk before air conditioners, refrigerators, and freezers can be picked up. 

All doors must be removed.

Construction and Electronic Debris

Microwaves, dehumidifiers, televisions, computers, pallets, blocks, ceramics, Porcelain toilet, sink, tub, paneling, lumber, doors, etc. 

Must be hauled by a private contractor.  For electronic recycling locations visit:


With the use of automation, haulers are no longer hand emptying trash, which makes it inefficient to collect battery bags.  OCRRA offers a year-round battery drop off at various local stores.  View this link for updated options:

Recycling Tips and Guidelines

The Village of Manlius encourages everyone to continue to be vigilant in their recycling efforts. Your commitment to recycle is helping to control the cost of our trash tipping fees, which results in keeping trash stickers off the residential garbage. It also helps preserve our natural resources.
