Recycling Services

Basehor residents receive a 65-gallon recycling cart with a blue lid from Brothers Disposal. The recycling poly-cart will be picked up on the normal trash day. Position your recycling cart with the handle facing the house at least 3 feet from the trash poly-cart and 1 foot from the curb. All recyclables should be placed loosely inside the cart, not in bags.

Recyclable Items

Cardboard Boxes

Cardboard boxes that do not fit in the recycling cart must be cut down to less than 3 feet by 3 feet, flattened, and stacked neatly. The stacks may be tied with twine or string to secure, as long as the bundle is no more than 2 feet in height.
