Dual stream recycling is collected with automated trucks to maximize efficiency. If glass were collected with containers using this method the resulting breakage would contaminate other materials. Excluding glass from curbside pickup at this time is the only way to preserve the quality of the recyclables. The recycling department will continue to explore collection options and possible drop sites throughout the community.
A timeline is currently being developed, with every intention to include all single-family residences within the city limits within the next two years.
The recycling department is gathering information and welcomes feedback from participants as we continue to develop and introduce more areas to the dual stream collection program.
