The City of Lockport offers a convenient recycling and refuse program that is fair and equitable for all city property owners. Also, with variable sizes to select from, residents only pay for what they need and use. If you have questions or concerns about this program, which is not found on this site, please call the City Clerk’s office at 439-6676 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you would like to contact Modern about a missed collection, please call customer service at 754-8226 or (800) 662-0012.
Holidays to note
For each of the following holidays, collection will be delayed by one day:
Fourth of July
New Year’s Day
Participation is easy
City users will select from three service tiers that all include unlimited curbside recycling. Each month, during the first full week, residents are welcome to place a “bulky” item to the curb for collection. Bulky items are those that are too large to fit within your cart, such as appliance (with Freon removed) sofa, chair, desk or mattress. Additional Capacity stickers are sold at the City Clerks window for $10 per sticker.
Placing Your Cart to the Curb
When placing your cart out for collection make sure the lid is closed (this will make it easier to wheel and will keep snow, rain and critters out). To wheel, use the convenient “tilt and go” design feature (between the wheels at the rear of the cart) and tilt the cart back slightly. Please place your cart out the evening prior or morning (before 7 a.m.) of collection with the “hinges facing your house.” There are also arrows on your carts to point toward the street.
At the streetline, place your cart 3-5 feet from the street that is free of obstructions, such as utility poles, mailboxes and fire hydrants.
Your User Fee
The City has adopted a Pay as You Throw program that allows residents to select their desired level of service and pay for only what they are using.

Single Stream Recycling. We make it easy.
Lockport residents now have the opportunity to recycle household items, curbside! In an effort to make recycling that much easier for the property owner, the City offers single-stream recycling. This means newspaper, cardboard, plastic, glass, etc. can all be placed together in your recycling tote. No Sorting!
Recycling Rewards is a community based incentive program that encourages curbside recycling, by offering rewards from local, regional and national businesses. Recycling Rewards is a WIN-WIN-WIN-WIN program maintained by our partner, Modern, which benefits residents, local businesses, the environment and the community.
New York State has prohibited the collection of electronics by any solid waste hauler. Residents seeking to dispose of electronics, such as televisions, computers, gaming consoles, DVD or VCR players can no longer place them to the curb. Instead, these items can be taken to Harrison Place (using the South Street entrance) every first and third Saturday each month between the hours of 10 a.m. and noon.
