Let Recycling Begin!

The recycling bins, actually 95-gallon garbage cans on wheels, were delivered to Woodvale residents this morning. The actual first recycling pickup will come on Wednesday, January 13, 2010. The bins can be used to recycle plastics (1, 2, and 3), tin cans, aluminum cans, newspaper, cardboard, and regular paper (like junk mail). Sam, our Allied Waste representative, told me that they would really appreciate it if shredded paper were put in a bag since the pickup is done through an automated process. This will keep our neighborhood clean since those tiny shredded pieces can really fly around.

Pickup will occur every two weeks on Wednesday once they get started.

Here is a picture of the bin delivered to my house.

It is surely exciting to see this project get underway.
