New Pioneers organized and monitors the Springfield Curbside Pickup Recycling program. It began in May 2005 as a partnership between the City of Springfield and the Washington County Department of Solid Waste.


Springfield recycling is collected at curbside every other Thursday except on holidays. If the route is not completed, some areas are picked up on Friday mornings.

Curbside service is not able to pick up paper. Newspaper, office paper, junk mail, and flattened boxes of all kinds may be dropped off 24/7 at the Regional Recycling Center, 190 West Industry Drive, Springfield.

County residents please drop any of the above materials and paper products at your nearest county recycling collection center (Map to come soon!).

Leftover food and beverage particles in containers attract rodents and insects, making life unpleasent for recycling workers. Thanks for your extra effort to rinse your recyclables! It is fine to leave on their labels.
