Recycling Collection Weather Related Schedule

Yesterday when running the recycle route, the drivers reported unsafe road conditions on Fox Mountain Dr, Rolling view, and pleasant view. 

Looking at temperatures throughout the week and next, we feel our best opportunity would be to attempt to collect these residents next Monday, the 22ND. The Stops have been moved to this new service day to ensure on route for collection.

Have you heard of 'Wishful Recycling'? It causes more harm than good!

Wishful recycling occurs when material is tossed in the recycling bin that you hope are recyclable or think should be. It is good intentioned, but it causes contamination and can result in recyclable material being sent to the landfill. Only place acceptable materials in your recycling container and ensure it is clean and loose. Clean recycling reduces contamination and loose material aids in sorting.
