Recycling Program Offered to Businesses

June 2013 - The City of Carmel encourages its residents and businesses to recycle whenever possible.  Therefore, the City along with Republic Services is pleased to offer the City trash & recycling program to area businesses and organizations as a way to increase the level of recycling within the City as well as save the organizations money.

This recycling program features:

  • Biweekly curbside recycling if desired (one or two 96 gallon carts)
  • Weekly trash service if desired (one or two 96 gallon carts)
  • Note: Maximum of three carts, two of any type.
  • Low monthly fee of $9.09 for 2013 service included with your Carmel Utilities bill.
  • If you do not receive a Carmel Utilities bill one will be generated for you for trash/recycling service.
  • Features are identical to the residential program including service day.


  • Business/organization must be located within the City limits of Carmel.
  • Site visit for pick-up logistics and pre-approval by Republic Services is required.
  • Businesses in leased space must obtain prior approval from their landlord regarding cart storage and street curbside pick-up. Neither the City of Carmel Utilities nor Republic Services will be involved in these arrangements.
Encouraging Recycling
Participating in the trash portion of this program is not required.  Carmel Utilities recognizes that many businesses have trash needs greater than what the program provides yet would like the convenience of biweekly curbside recycling via 96 gallon carts.   You may keep your current trash arrangements and utilize the city service for just for recycling.
