Curbside Recycling Program

It's rare for a town of less than 1,500 people to boast a curbside recycling program, but this is an important feature that Bruderheim offers its residents. The following items are recyclable for weekly pickup on Thursdays (residential) and Fridays (commercial):

  • Paper products (including boxboard)
  • Bottles & cans
  • Plastic containers (including milk jugs)
  • Cardboard
  • Tin cans
  • Glass jars


Place items in blue bags inside the recycle roll cart and set it out on the curb with your regular garbage. GFL Environmental is our collection company.
