Q: Are my trash and recycling days still the same?

A: YES, but your day of the week probably has changed.  Pick up days are now four days a week- check the map to determine your day. Please note that this day may change as things are adjusted to meet everyone's needs.

 

Q:  Do I have to use a recycling bin to recycle?

A:  NO, you can use any container, up to a 30 gal trash can, JUST MAKE SURE IT IS CLEARLY MARKED FOR RECYCLING. See policy here.

 

Q:  I saw a trash truck picking up my recycling!  What's going on?

A:  With Zero Sort, recyclables are picked up by a trash truck.  Since materials are co-mingled this saves space by being able to compress them.

 

Q: Why does it take so long for my trash or reycling to be picked up? 

A:  Whichever is picked up first, that material has to be delivered, then the same truck comes back the same day to pick up the other material.  Ex:  Our recyclables are picked up and delivered to a reloading station in Naples, then the truck comes back, picks up the trash, and delivers it to the trash-to-energy plant in Auburn.

 

Q:  Should we leave plastic pumps on plastic lotion/sanitizer bottles? 

A:  NO, the spring inside creates a problem.  Recycle the bottle, and trash the pump.

 

Q:  Should we take the cover off a bottle if it is a different plastic from the bottle? 

A:  Not small covers- they fall through the cracks and get trashed.  However, large covers (like peanut can covers) are OK to separate.

 

Q:  What about hybrid cans (paperboard/foil sides and metal bottoms)? 

A:  These are OK, but if you can separate the bottoms that's even better.
