FREE CURBSIDE PICKUP OF E-WASTE…AND SO MUCH MORE! Make your online request at the bottom of this page!
The RECYCLE MORE program offers free curbside pickup to City of Napa (NRWS) customers of all electronics, appliances and oversize metal items (that do not fit in the recycling cart), clothing and shoes…and NOW ACCEPTING ALL HOUSEHOLD BATTERIES!
Please note that there is no stand-alone pickup of batteries — battery pickup must be combined with another Recycle More pickup.
✔ All rechargeable and non-rechargeable batteries are accepted.
✔ Place your old batteries in sealed clear plastic bag for recycling.
✔ Please tape the positive (+) terminal before bagging and placing the batteries at the curb with the other Recycle More items.
Just have batteries? See our battery recycling page for all battery drop off locations. Auto batteries are not accepted in Recycle More – scroll down on the battery recycling page for auto battery drop off sites, or check the automotive page for all auto fluid and battery recycling information.
What is Accepted in Recycle More:
- Household batteries (when combined with other items)
- Televisions & computer monitors
- Computer & office equipment
- Consumer electronics
- Household appliances/anything with a cord
- Large metal appliances – doors on refrigerators, freezers, washers and dryers must be removed or have their latching/locking mechanism disabled for safety
- Oversize metal items (over 36”)
- Cooking oil (call or send a request below to receive your collection container)
- Bagged Clothing & Shoes (see below for details)
Clothing & Shoes can be reused and recycled too!! 85% of used clothing and shoes currently ends up in the landfill – let’s reduce waste and recycle more! That’s why we collect clothing & shoes on the Recycle More route – these items will be sent to Goodwill Industries of the Redwood Empire to support local reuse and recycling! Accepted items include:
- All clothing
- All other textiles, including towels, linens & bedding
- Shoes & belts
- Purses, Handbags & backpacks
- Hard cover books
Holes, tears and stains are OK. All clothing items must be dry and bagged in a tied plastic bag. Wet items cannot be accepted. Please do not include dirty cleaning rags. Our minimum for pickup of these clothing items is at least a full kitchen-size bag (there is no minimum if we are also picking up electronics or a metal appliance).
The RECYCLE MORE route also picks up used cooking oil! Customers need to contact us in advance to be provided with a 1-gallon can to store used cooking oil. The RECYCLE MORE program will pick up the used oil by appointment and replace the can with another empty. The collect oil will be turned into biodiesel – read more about the program on our cooking oil page. This program is for cooking oil only, please no fats or grease. Solid fats and grease should go in your compost cart. Please do not dispose of any fats, oil or grease down the drain – the Napa Sanitation District has more info.
Currently, the RECYCLE MORE program is only offered to residential and commercial customers in the City of Napa. Your free curbside pick-up is by appointment only and not part of your regularly scheduled NRWS services. Please do not include any of these items in your blue recycling cart.
Napa County customers can drop off e-waste and metal for free at the Napa Recycling & Composting Facility or e-waste, metal, clothing, and cooking oil for free at the Devlin Road Reuse & Recycle Center, or call to schedule an e-waste or bulky item pickup for a small fee. Free drop off of batteries is available at many locations in Napa County.
More info on electronics recycling is on our e-waste page.
