CURBSIDE RECYCLING CHANGE ALTERNATE WEEKS
Effective January 1, 2020, cardboard and paper will NOT be picked up the same week as commingled (bottles, cans, glass, plastics 1 & 2). Pick up will be on ALTERNATING WEEKS.
For Example :
· Cardboard and paper will be picked up one week .
· Commingled (bottles, cans, glass, plastics 1&2) will be picked up the following week.
COLLECTION DATES/RULES & REGULATIONS: REFER TO 2020 RECYCLING BROCHURE MAILER OR, https://www.lincolnpark.org/204/Recycling, (in addition, the town planner will be sending out calendar with collection dates.)
*This change will improve efficiency, reduce costs, use less fuel and reduce carbon emissions.
“When in doubt throw it out” -it is better to throw out an item with your solid waste rather than risk contaminating the recyclables. ALMOST 30% IF RECYCLED ITEMS END UP IN LANDFILLS DUE TO CONTAMINATION. It is best to reduce, then reuse and finally recycle.
We would like to take this opportunity to personally thank our residents for anticipated cooperation with our new recycling program changes.
