In 2016, the City converted from a manual recycling collection system, which uses people and traditional rear loading vehicles, to an automated collection system, which uses vehicles with robotic arms mounted on the side to pick up and empty the recycle containers. The new system is safer and enables us to be more effective and efficient.
As part of the transition, we replaced our customers' existing recycle bins with new 95-gallon roll carts. The new carts have lids, which keep the materials contained and dry; wheels, which make them easier to get to the curb and much more room for bulky items and plenty of recyclables.
