New Size Preparation For Recycling Cardboard
Solid Waste Services has updated the requirements for cardboard preparation. These updates were made in an effort to improve service quality for residents. The new preparation requirements will allow all recyclables to fall loosely into automated recycling trucks, improving the collection quality and process.
