Holland BPW provides the billing and call center services for the City of Holland's Refuse and Recycling program.

The City of Holland has a mandatory residential refuse & recycle curbside pickup program. This is for residents that live in a single family home, a duplex, and some apartments. Collection is made once a week on a regularly scheduled pick up day. The City of Holland has a contract with Republic Services to manage curbside pickup and hauling duty.
