Hi everyone...I have gotten some e-mails from people saying they are confused about what or what not to do with the new garbage/recycling programs. I am going to attempt to answer all questions and give all the information I have right now...
STARTING THE WEEK OF MAY 3RD
DO I STILL USE MY OWN GARBAGE CAN?
Yes, the two carts we delivered are in addition to your own garbage can. We will be providing a choice of new wheeled in the summer. You will receive a card in your home asking you to choose between a 20, 32, 48 or 64 gallon can and these cans will be delivered around August/September.
WHAT GOES IN THE BLUE CART?
WHAT GOES IN THE BLUE CART?
All the recycling items that previously went into the bins, along with all plastic containers marked 1-7 (we will now take bakery and deli items, berry baskets, pill bottles and microwave dishes but NO PAPER BAGS), all your aluminum foil and pie plates and household batteries (put in a plastic ziplock bag on the top of the bin) and tubes,
THIS CART WILL BE PICKED UP EVERY OTHER WEEK (USE YOUR GREENWASTE SCHEDULE) ALONG WITH YOUR GARBAGE CAN AND GREENWASTE/ORGANCS CART. IF YOU DO NOT KNOW WHAT WEEK IS YOUR PICKUP, GO TO OUR WEBSITE AT WWW.RECOLOGYOFTHECOAST.COM AND CHECK BY DAY AND STREET (IN ALPHABETICAL ORDER) TO SEE WHAT SCHEDULE YOU ARE ON FOR PICKUP. I AM ALSO PLANING ON PRINTING THIS ENTIRE SCHEDULE IN THE TRIB ON WEDNESDAY, APRIL 28TH.
WHAT GOES IN THE GREEN CART?
All the greenwaste you were putting out in the 4-30 gallon cans every other week as well as fruits, vegetables, meat and bones and soiled paper (McDonald's wrappings). If your child eats at McDonald's, the paper bag would go in the recycling, the hamburger and fries wrapping would go in the greenwaste/compost cart along with any left over food and the soiled napkin.,
THIS CART WILL BE PICKED UP EVERY WEEK ALONG WITH YOUR GARBAGE CAN.
NO KITTY LITTER OR DOG DROPPINGS IN THE GREENWASTE/ORGANICS CART PLEASE!
WHEN IS MY PICKUP DAY?
All pickup days remain the same except your recycling now gets picked up every other week and your greenwaste/organics gets picked up every week.
CAN I GET A SMALLER CART OR ADDITIONAL GREENWASTE CART?
We will have smaller carts for both recycling and greenwaste/organics available June 1st. We ask that you try the carts you have for thirty days and if they still do not meet your individual needs, call or e-mail us and we will pickup the one you have now and deliver an alternate size. On the other hand, if you need an additional greenwaste cart, we can supply another one for a fee of $3 a month.
Please review and advise if this helps anyone! If you have any other questions, shoot them through (no, don't shoot me!).
