The Town of Fletcher provides curbside recycling to all Town residents. This is a contracted service with Curbside Management of Asheville. This recycling program provides our residents with the easiest and most efficient way to recycle.

The Town provides each household with a 95-gallon blue recycling cart at no charge.  Please prepare your recyclables following these guidelines: do not sort your items just place all recycling items directly into the cart; do not place anything inside a bag; empty all bottles, jars, cans, etc. but labels may remain on; flatten all corrugated cardboard and place under or beside your recycling cart; roll your cart to the curb by 7:00 a.m. on your scheduled recycling day.  This is a very easy program and can deliver great benefits if we all participate.
