Taking Care of the earth together Residential Recycling Services
Responsible care for the environment is a whole community effort and recycling is part of that. We make recycling easy, so you don’t have to worry about it.
95 Gallon Carts
with Nisly Wind Latches!
We offer residential recycle carts customers can wheel to the curb for bi-weekly or monthly service. Our recycle carts are standard 95-gallon poly carts that are commonly used in residential trash and recycle service. As part of each customer’s quality recycle service, each recycle cart comes equipped with a Nisly wind latch. Our wind latches are designed to make our customers’ lives easier by keeping the lid closed and preventing blowing trash.
Our recycling service is single-stream recycling, which we offer as an option to our trash customers. For more information on exactly which items our system can accept as recyclables, see the detailed lists below.

What Our Customers Are Saying…
So glad that Nisly continues to offer a recycling program. You recognize the long-term benefits of reducing, recycling, and reusing. Drivers are friendly, respectful, timely, and dependable.

James delivered my recycling container. He was friendly, informative, & efficient. I’m very glad Nisly is doing recycling service again. It’s very difficult to do it myself, but I feel it’s too important to stop. Thank you!

James is a great driver and very nice!
Nisly Brothers is a great company. We’ve had them for several years, for both refuse and recycling. They’ve always been dependent and never let us down. They operate clean equipment and trucks and the men are always friendly. Holly, in the office is a real sweetheart. I’d like to think of something bad to say, because I hate giving 5 star reviews. I just can’t think of anything. If you ever have a problem with a cart, they quickly replace it. As long as I can remember, everyone has been happy with their service. It was a disappointment when the city discontinued recycling and I was happy when Nisly started up the service in the area again. Kudos to them for doing that. Many of us want to continue recycling. I’ve been doing it for the past 42 years and it just doesn’t feel right not doing it.
Very pleased with our service and with our friendly driver.
I am a new customer. All of the interactions with employees have been favorable. The office staff, the person that brought my cart, and the driver Jeff. On 2 occasions Jeff went out of his way to make sure my cart was dumped. Everyone has been friendly.
After Newton terminated city recycling, I was very happy that Nisly Brothers was available to use as an alternative service. I have appreciated the communication offered from Nisly restarting up with their services, as well as ongoing emails and updated information.
We had our first recycling pick-up today after our city canceled ours. I had the Nisly trash can full of recycling, as well as, the old recycling one from our city.
They agreed to dump both this first time! I appreciated this so very much!!
I am a brand new customer. I put in an online request for service, and the process was straightforward and easy. Within a few days, my new recycling bin arrived and was placed in a location where I couldn’t miss it. Very happy with services so far.
Just starting your recycle service in Newton. James dropped off our container and was very polite and spoke very highly of Nisly Brothers. He indeed seems proud to work there. We look forward to being able to have your service and continue recycling. Thank You, Randy & Susan Rice.
Met a Nisly driver, James, for the first time today as he dropped off my new tan recycling cart. He was very gracious and kind. He pulled the cart to the top of the hill for me. Prompt; I just signed up yesterday.
Arthur is a great service oriented driver. We appreciate his demeanor as he always comes in the office with a smile. No matter what the weather or how long of a day he has had, he consistently serves us with a wonderful attitude!
We love that you were able to accommodate our needs! We recycle a lot more than we have trash! Thank you for working with us!
When our old service stopped
When our old service stopped their recycling service, it was great to have you stop by the house and present your services, including recycling! The switchover was seamless and your customer service has been great. Glad to be working with a great company.
– Lee and Shanna –
Our prior trash service stopped offering recycling pickup. Nisly stepped in to add this service. Helped us. Helped the environment. Many thanks.
Excellent. Lower prices than others. Great customer service. I might suggest a text message reminder system for the pick up date the day before. Just a thought since I occasionally do forget (my own fault of course, but it would help tremendously).
JESSICA Y. KIRDYASHEV
Jeff is always clean-cut and friendly. Before I realized that I could pay for an additional recycling dumpster, I always had extra in the receptacle from my garage, out next to my bin. If Jeff was cursing me under his breath for having to get out of his truck to collect my additional recycling, he never let on and even took the time to walk my bin up, since he was already out of the truck anyway, a time or two.

Appreciated His Attitude and Helpfulness
We have been cleaning out our parents house. Recycling had built up for a number of weeks because it was too windy to put it out. Your driver, Arthur, took time to get off the truck and cheerfully help me load and dump numerous dumpster loads. I appreciated his attitude and helpfulness.
Pleased From Day One
I have been pleased with Nisly from day one. Everyone I have spoken to is courteous. I have recycling service also, but I could only choose one option.
What Great Service
The recycle program is the best! I am very happy with the driver and wish I knew his name. I’m in Cunningham KS and the driver has come back to make a pick up after we forgot to get the bin out. What great service!
Prompt, Reliable Service
I like that you provide prompt, reliable service. Always clean, never any trash blowing up and down the streets. Website and giveaways are awesome also!
Never Have Had Poor Service
You all just do a great job. Never have had poor service!! Keep it up!
We Are So Fortunate
Your drivers are great. I wish I knew their name so I could thank them personally. We are so fortunate to have the type of recycling service that we do. Some folks aren’t so fortunate. Thank you!!
Absolutely No Complaints
You guys do great!! Absolutely no complaints!
Stephanie A Ravenstien
Excellent service! In our case- recycle weekly and trash every other week would be better, because we recycle almost everything.
You always do great service!
Rian and Christa Swartz
Always Great Service!!
Always great service!! 🙂
Efficiently Picked Up
Happy to see our recycling efficiently picked up. Having the instructions on the recycle container of what can and can’t be recycled is very helpful.
You Guys Are Pretty Awesome
You guys are pretty awesome! A couple of times I have been hustling out with my cart to the curb and the driver patiently waited on me!! So kind and thanks for all you guys do!
