Phase 2 Automated Collection Recycling Begins for 12,500 Residents

While new blue 96-gallon recycling carts began appearing in designated neighborhoods this week in preparation for the Phase 2 Automated Collection Single Stream Recycling Program, the program does not officially begin until the week of Oct. 22 – 25, for residents who have collection on a Yellow Week, and the week of Oct. 29 – Nov. 1, for residents who have collection on a Blue Week.

Residents should continue to use their red recycling bins until Phase 2 goes into effect later this month.

All cart deliveries will be curbside. However, the actual collection point for the new containers will continue to be as it currently is—either at the alley or curb.

The map showing the new Phase 2 areas and the Yellow/Blue recycling schedule are posted on the Recycling page.
