Tomorrow, Wednesday February 4, will be the first day McGree Trucking will pick up recycling in the pilot program neighborhoods. Please anticipate recyclable items to include plastics (1-2), aluminum and tin cans, cardboard, newspaper, office paper, and magazines. All materials should be rinsed and free of food waste. Please remove lids from all plastic bottles. All materials can be co-mingled, and then placed in the blue recycling cart.
Wherever your garbage is currently picked-up will likely be the location where you should place your recycling container. On the first and third Wednesday of each month, your blue recycling cart should be placed three feet from any stationary object or another solid waste cart. All lids should close with ease. No additional recyclables placed outside of standard carts will be picked up. Also, non-recyclable items will not be collected and must be placed with your black household garbage carts.
We are happy for such great participation in this pilot program. Help us transition other neighborhoods to city-wide curbside recycling! Call Giao Hoang at 497-6518 if you have questions about this program.
