A new recycling company, Tidewater Fiber, will begin services on July 1, 2019. There will be changes that will affect YOU!
Your current recycling cart will be switched out with a new GRAY and TAN lid cart.
Collection will remain every other week but your recycling collection day will now be the same day as your garbage collection day. If your garbage is collected on Mondays, then your recycling will be collected on Mondays (every other week). If your garbage is collected on Tuesdays, then your recycling will be collected on Tuesdays (every other week).
Items outside of your cart will NOT be collected. Everything must be in your cart. Call our office to set up a large cardboard pickup.
Only #1 & #2 plastics are accepted - these are the plastics with a neck. No longer accepted are butter tubs, yogurt cups, take out clam shells, etc.
Details and dates will be announced soon.
