Although each community may have different garbage carts/receptacles, the recycling carts are identical in every city in both counties. Please make sure you are placing the proper items in each cart.
What was old is new again!
If you have recently made a trip to the facility, you may have noticed the blue drop boxes are gone and in their place are the old, but updated green boxes. The yellow doors are the same as the lids you will find on the curbside carts, outlining what is and is not acceptable for recycling. Have no fear, single stream recycling is still in effect with these boxes. Please notice that there is STILL a separate green box for cardboard ONLY. Please ensure that you are flattening all cardboard boxes before depositing, as it saves space and makes processing easier.
-Sometimes it is pouring rain
-Sometimes there is a cold north wind and maybe blowing snow
-Sometimes you are running late and in a hurry
-Sometimes it is just easier to pull the cart to the end of the driveway and leave it there...however it lands.
Please notice that the proper way to place your cart is with the handle toward your house. If the handle is facing the street, it cannot be dumped properly (the lid gets in the way) and may result in recycling debris blowing all over your yard or your neighbors. Please take the time to square the cart to the curb and ensure the handle is facing your house.
