CITY OF SPARTANBURG INCREASES GREEN FOOT PRINT


CITY OF SPARTANBURG INCREASES GREEN FOOT PRINT


Beginning December 7, 2009 the City of Spartanburg’s Solid Waste department will introduce improvements to its current recycling program.

Large 96 gallon roll carts will replace the current 16 gallon bins. Recycling pickup will go from a weekly pick up to a twice a month pick up. The new carts will be delivered beginning November 17th with all carts delivered by November 30th. This new procedure increases individual residence recycling pick up from 16 gallons/weekly to 192 gallons/monthly.

All paper products and empty metal cans will be accepted in your recycling cart for pick up. Glass should be taken to Spartanburg County Convenience Centers.

A City representative will attend Neighborhood Association meetings to educate and to answer any questions residents may have.

For additional information, please contact Bill Thompson, Solid Waste Manager @ 864-562-2931.
