has been using a new recycling program called Single Stream Recycling for curbside
collection customers since October 1, 2008.
With Single Stream
Recycling all the materials you recycle are mixed together in one collection truck and
sorted at an automated processing facility. This will offer curbside recycling
customers a simpler way to recycle. Now all you do is toss in all your recyclables
into one bin, place the bins at the curb the same day your trash is picked up and Waste
Connections will do the rest.
Single Stream Recycling will allow Waste Connections to accept a
wider range of
New materials accepted include mixed paper, mail, magazines, phone books, cardboard
and plastics with
plastic identification codes 1 through 7, along with currently accepted materials
including glass, steel/aluminum cans, and newspaper. The plastic identification code
can be found on the bottom of most plastic containers.
interested in recycling should contact City Hall at (865) 475-9071.
Do your part.
