Single Stream Recycling FAQs
Single stream recycling containers deliveries will BEGIN on November 3, 2014 and CONTINUE each Monday, your normal recycling day, until the deliveries are complete. Your red and blue bins will be exchanged for the single stream blue cart only on a Monday. If you are not in residence at this time, as soon as you return and use your red and blue bins, Waste Management will deliver your new single stream blue recycling cart. Recycle more, recycle easier ... no more sorting.
Special pickups of large items and appliances can be arranged directly with the Town's waste hauler by calling (941) 753-7591. Fees may apply.
Electronic appliances and equipment are considered "e-scrap" and are recyclable. Old television sets 43" or less can be placed curbside.
