The City of Lincolnton provides residential curbside recycling for residents who sign-up to participate in the program. Participants are issued one 96-gallon roll-out bin to collect acceptable recyclables and the Lincolnton Solid Waste department empties bins city-wide once each month on the FIRST FRIDAY of every month.
