UPDATE: City of Pensacola Recycling Temporarily on Hold Due to ECUA Facility Repairs
Due to repairs at the Emerald Coast Utilities Authority's Materials Recycling Facility, recycling for City of Pensacola Sanitation customers has been temporarily on hold since June 16, 2022. ECUA's new estimated reopening date for the recycling facility is Sept. 9, 2022.
City of Pensacola Sanitation Services Department uses ECUA's recycling facility to process recyclable materials from City Sanitation customers, and ECUA is not accepting recyclables as repairs are completed to the facility. Tan recycling cans will still be collected, but materials will not be recycled.
In the meantime, customers are urged to maintain positive recycling habits. ECUA is working as quickly as possible to bring the facility back into operation.
Another notice will be sent once ECUA is able to accept recyclable materials and recycling can resume for City of Pensacola Sanitation customers.
