All of our customers in these areas are now able to recycle 21 different items co-mingled in one 96 gallon Blue cart. Service for single stream will be every other week. Garbage collection will remain every week.

This is the easiest and most efficient way to recycle. We look forward to partnering with you in this environmentally friendly effort. We will now be providing only single stream recycling and traditional garbage service combined.
