Yes my friends, it’s true. We’re going to get Blue Cart Recycling this Spring! There are two upcoming meetings in our area (dates and times listed below) where all the details will be explain.  In the meantime, here are the basic you need to know:

  • Date: Blue Cart Recycling starts April 2nd, 2012 and will be collected every other week
  • Bins: Blue carts will be delivered to the front of your house beginning March 21st – you will need to move them next to your garbage bins
  • # of Bins: Single family residences will get 1 cart, two and three-flats will get 2 carts, and 4-flats will receive 3 carts.
  • Pickup Days: According to the city’s website, residents with curbside garbage pickup should put out their blue bins on the day of their garbage pickup during their scheduled blue bin week.  Residents with alley garbage pickup, should leave their blue bins out for the entire scheduled blue bin week.  (Since the map currently on their site excludes our area, we can’t say what the pick-up weeks will be for Ukrainian Village.)
