Why do we have so many recycling carts?
Carting for the collection of residential solid waste has been common in many areas of the country for several years. The semi-automated or fully automated collection system has proven to be faster, safer, cleaner, and more economical to consumers.

This new program also is intended to help the environment by reducing what is sent to landfills, and thereby making recycling easier. The sturdy, lidded carts also will help keep our community clean by making it more difficult for critters to overturn your trash cans. And as an added benefit, Allied Waste will rebate the City 50% of the value of all recycling collected
