Woman hard-to-recycle items into Ridwell bin

Recyclable and reusable stuff, picked up from your doorstep.

See categories for your home!
Ridwell collects stuff that can’t go in your curbside bin. That means categories can vary based on your location.

Get these categories picked up every two weeks.

Our core categories include everyday household items that you can't recycle curbside. Use your cloth Ridwell bags to keep things organized until your next pickup! The examples below are available in most locations.
