Your new recycling cart will be delivered to your home in May at no charge to you. Carts may not be placed at the curb for service until the resident’s first service day, on or after June 1, 2015.
Think Green! The recycling cart will look similar to your existing cart, but it will have a green lid.
All residents will receive a 95-gallon cart. Although this may seem very large, you will soon find that your recycling cart will fill more quickly than your trash cart. Smaller recycling carts are not available at this time. If you want to exchange the trash cart for a smaller size, you may call the Public Works Department at 340-6339 and the city will deliver your smaller trash cart when they become available in 2016.
Participation in Emporia’s curbside recycling program is voluntary. We hope you recognize the importance of recycling and will accept your environmental responsibility to participate. We request residents to try curbside recycling for 90 days. If you still do not want your recycling cart after this time, the city will pick up your cart at no charge.
If anyone is physically unable to move the cart to the street, they should call the Public Works Department at 340-6339.
