Recycling Collection Returns to Normal Schedule

Monday, July 25, 2022


The City of Aiken Department of Public Services announced that recycling collection will resume its normal schedule effective July 25, 2022. Please call 803-642-7613 with any questions or concerns about recycling or trash collection.


July 18 – The recycling vendor that processes the City of Aiken’s recycling, has notified the City’s Public Services department that they cannot accept City recycling this week due to equipment and capacity issues. Customers may hold their recyclables until their next regularly scheduled recycling pickup day. Those customers who prefer to proceed with their regular pickup schedule will have their recyclables combined with the household trash pickup.

At this time, the recycling facility expects the situation to be resolved by the end of the week.

Updates be made available at, the Aiken Explorer mobile app, and social media channels, when available.
