NEW RECYCLING CART INFO
This only pertains to those residents serviced by Waste Management through our waste hauling contract. (Examples of developments not included in the contract would be condominiums, manufactured homes, commercial properties and private communities.)
Once you receive your cart, begin using it on your next designated collection day. Waste Management will use a mechanical device to collect recycling. The cart should be placed within 2 feet of the roadway and 4 feet away from a permanent structure, mailboxes, vehicles, etc. ALL RECYCLABLES MUST BE IN THE NEW CART. ANY RECYCLING PLACED OUTSIDE THE NEW CONTAINER WILL NOT BE COLLECTED. Please remember these carts are for recycling items ONLY. Trash and recycling should not be mixed together.
If you do not want your old recycling bin, please mark the bin as TRASH and place next to your regular trash.
