Recycling is the key here. The more you recycle the less you will have to put into your trash bin. This is the main reason the Solid Waste Department has decided to promote the new system of trash collection. We feel it will raise our recycling rates considerably!
Republic Services will now accept your paperboard (cereal boxes, mac-n-cheese boxes, etc.) as part of your recyclables. This should significantly reduce the amount of trash most families need to throw away. For details about what you can put in your curbside bins, please see their Curbside Recyclables Flyer (PDF).
