The City of Vidalia along with Republic Services has created a video that provides information regarding what items can and cannot be placed in recycling carts. Please visit the following link to see the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nGwDSPCCxSM

Items that CAN  be placed in the recycle cart include cardboard with no wax and/or glossy finish, aluminum cans, and any plastic container (water bottle, mouthwash bottle, ketchup bottle, ground coffee container) with a one (1) or a two (2) inside of the recycle triangle. Please see picture below to see those items as well.

Can Recycle

Items that CANNOT be recycled include snack boxes, cereal boxes, plastic bags from the local grocery store, styrofoam plates, any plastic without a one (1) or a two (2) in the recycle triangle, plastic sandwich bags, tin cans such as soup or dog food cans, glass, any type of paper (including newspaper), and the box that aluminum drink cans come in. Please see picture below.

Cant Recycle

Other miscellaneous items that cannot be placed in a recycling cart include yard debris, metal, tires, paint cans, cords, tarps, and fabric. 

The City of Vidalia recognizes the importance of recycling and what it means to many of our citizens. We want to encourage you to be mindful of what is being placed in the recycling carts so that we may continue our recycling program. When items are recycled, it saves funds that would be used to pay landfill costs.

Republic Services will resume their regular pickup of recyclables on February 2, 2023.

If you have any further questions regarding the suspension of recycling collection, please contact City Hall at 912-537-8718.
