TIPS FOR HANDLING YOUR EXTRA HOLIDAY RECYCLING

Remember this is an “AUTOMATED COLLECTION”…. ALL MATERIALS MUST BE PLACED IN THE CART FOR COLLECTION.  ITEMS OUTSIDE OF THE CART WILL NOT BE COLLECTED.

Please consider these tips to maximize the use of your cart:

  • Flatten out all the boxes.
  • Place the flattened cardboard into your cart last; if it is full, use the lid like a clipboard to hold the flattened cardboard.
  • Use one of the boxes to place flattened cardboard into it and place that entire box full of flattened cardboard on top of the recycling cart.

 

And remember – carts should be at the curb by 7 AM on your collection day! Holidays can affect the timing of the routes and the trucks may be in your area earlier than usual.
Please have your recycling carts out by 7 AM to make sure you don’t miss your collection!
