Curbside Recycling

The City of Hudson encourages residents to use curbside recycling to preserve our community and our environment. All refuse haulers in Hudson provide Single-Stream Recycling to help residents easily identify which items can be placed in the recycling container. Separation of recyclables is no longer required.  

With the 65-gallon recycling cart provided by Republic Services, Hudson's Preferred Hauler, recycling is even easier. You simply place all recyclable items in the cart and take it to your curb. No need to separate items, bag them and take them in your car to a recycle site.  Plastic bags are not permitted in recycling containers.

What can you recycle curbside?

  • Cartons - milk, juice, broth, soup, and other food or beverage cartons
  • Paper and Cardboard - breakdown the cardboard
  • Rigid Plastics - detergent bottles and food containers. Please rinse. No bottle or container lids. Do not place soft plastics such as plastic bags or Styrofoam in the recycling cart.
  • Glass bottles and Jars
  • Aluminum and Metal Cans

What is Single-Stream Recycling?
With single-stream recycling offered as part of your curbside trash service in Hudson, we're making in easy to recycle, which is so important for our environment. Single-stream (also known as “fully commingled” or "single-sort") recycling is a system in which all paper fibers, plastics, metals, and other containers are mixed in a collection truck, instead of being sorted by the hauler. In single-stream, both the collection and processing systems are designed to handle this fully commingled mixture of recyclables, with materials being separated for reuse at a materials recovery facility.
