NEW RECYCLING BINS TO BE DELIVERED TO RESIDENTS NEXT MONTH

Increased Capacity, Simplification Will Hopefully Increase Participation

The Village of Addison and its contracted waste hauler, Allied Waste Services, have announced that single-family residences will receive new larger recycling bins, in an effort increase residents’ participation in the recycling program.

The new bins are funded in part by a fiscal year 2009 grant from the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity.

The 25-gallon bins will be distributed to residents – along with accompanying educational materials – beginning Sept. 14. Everyone should receive theirs by the end of the following week.

These bins will replace the need for the smaller recycling bins used currently, or recycling bags. Paper and non-paper recyclables can be placed in the same bin; there is no need for sorting. Residents who have a large quantity of recyclables are able to keep their old bin, and place both at the curb on their normal collection day.

“We hope that by making recycling even more convenient for our residents, we will see increased participation to help preserve the environment,” said Mayor Larry Hartwig.

For a complete list of items that are accepted, please visit the Village of Addison website at AddisonAdvantage.org.
