s Christmas approaches the City of Carbondale would like to remind residents about holiday refuse recycling schedules. Holiday wrapping paper and cardboard boxes can be recycled within the green bins or taken to one of the City's three drop off locations. Foil coated wrapping paper and plastic or Styrofoam packing material can be disposed as refuse. Boxes should be bundled or flattened or placed in a larger box and set next to the green recycle bin if it becomes full. Extra recyclable material may also be taken to a City of Carbondale drop off location.
Christmas Tree recycling will begin January 3, 2011. Pine rope, wreaths, garland and flocked trees must be discarded with the regular refuse.
Refuse and Recycling routes will run on the normal scheduled pick-up days during the holiday season. Trash, recycling and Christmas trees should be placed at the curb by 8:00 AM on the normal collection day.
Residents who need a recycling bin or have any questions, may contact the Maintenance and Environmental Services Office at 457-3275 during regular office hours of 7:00 AM and 4:00 PM, Monday thru Friday or visit the City's recycling website at www.CarbondaleRecycles.com.
