Recycle Program: Working Together For a Better Environment
It is the City of West Fargo's objective to encourage the reuse of valuable resources and to reduce the quality of solid waste that must be brought to the landfill. Your cooperation and effective participation is a contribution toward the achievement of that goal. At this time our program accommodates glass, aluminum and steel cans and newspaper.
Recycling bins can be picked up at West Fargo City Hall, 800 4th Avenue East or the Public Works Building at 810 12th Avenue NW. Recycling is collected every two weeks on your regularly scheduled garbage day. You will receive a recycling collection schedule when you purchase your recycling container.
