FREQUENTLY ASKED RECYCLING QUESTIONS:

  1. Can I choose my own cart size?

    • All carts are 95 gallons, with no additional size options available.  The carts were selected as appropriate for the average amount of recycling materials generated by a typical household in a two week period. 

  2. Will I still have to sort my recyclables?  How about paper?

    • Residents will no longer need to sort, bag or bundle their recyclables into separate categories (paper & cardboard included).  All recycling can be placed in the same cart. 

  3. Can I put my garbage and my recyclables in the same container?

    • No, residents are not allowed to co-mingle their garbage with recyclables.  The carts are not interchangeable, so please keep garbage separated from recycling and in its own cart. 

  4. What should I do with my “current” 18 gallon recycling bin?

    • You can keep it. OR If you choose not to keep it, please return it to the new recycling facility in Redwood Falls.

    • Please do NOT put the bin into the new cart. 

  5. What if I only have enough recycling to fill my cart once a month?

    • Collection will take place every two weeks, so place your cart at the curb whenever you have filled it (on your scheduled date). You are not required to put your cart out for every collection. 

  6. What if I’m unable to take my cart to the curb?

    • West Central Sanitation offers a “valet service” for this purpose. Contact West Central to make arrangements. 

  7. What happens if I sell my house?

    • Each cart has a chip embedded in it to identify the address of the user. If you plan to move, the cart needs to stay with the residence. 

  8. What happens if my cart “disappears”?

    • If your cart “disappears,” the cost of your cart will be assessed and billed back to you by West Central Sanitation. 

  9. I live in an apartment building, what should we do?

    • Apartment owners or managers should contact West Central to determine the appropriate number of containers and collection frequencies. 

  10. I didn’t receive a new cart and all my neighbors did, what should I do?

    • Contact West Central Sanitation to ensure that you receive your own residential cart. 

  11. What about plastic bags?

    • Clear or translucent plastic bags should be knotted and placed into another plastic bag and tied shut. Black, dark brown and any other dark colored plastic bags are garbage and should not be included with recyclables. 

  12. What should I do with my shredded personal paper?

    • Shredded paper placed in the cart or drop box can break open during transportation and cause problems at the facility. If possible, bring your bags of shredded paper directly to the facility to ensure that this material will get recycled. Keep in mind that the RRRSWA has a secure document destruction service available at the facility so we can shred your personal documents for you! There is no charge for personal shredding and a nominal fee for businesses.

  13. Why are we doing this? (Single stream recycling)

    • Residents of Redwood and Renville Counties have been asking for a “simpler” way to recycle. Single stream provides an easier way to recycle. The new carts provide more capacity, more efficient collection, protection from the weather and provide greater privacy.
