Residents are allowed to set out up to three (3) 14-gallon bins or like size containers (i.e laundry basket) next to their black and green recycle cart. The driver will empty the black and green cart, get out of the truck and empty the items in the additional containers into the cart and empty it. Items in the additional containers must be able to fit into the black and green cart. If you routinely have an overflow of recycling, you should consider leasing an additional black and green cart for $36 per cart per year. You are allowed a maximum of three (3) black and green carts. For information about leasing additional carts, contact the Department of Public Service at 989-837-6900.
