New way to recycle in the Q.C.

Posted By on Mon, Mar 1, 2010 at 4:52 PM

Residents in east Charlotte will start receiving the city's new recycling bins this week, meant to replace the red bins we're currently using. Don't want one? Call 3-1-1 and let them know.

For a refresher on what's recyclable and what's not: Here's what Char-Meck is currently able to recycle, here's what they'll be able to recycle with this new program.

The City of Charlotte will begin rolling out new green bins today ahead of this summer's changes in the way Charlotteans recycle their refuse.

Eventually more than 200,000 rollout bins will be distributed. They are intended to replace the current red box-style containers, starting this summer.

Distribution will begin in northeast Charlotte and work clockwise around the city, spokeswoman Brandi Williams said. The city expects to deliver about 1,500 a day.

Except for their color, the 96-gallon bins look like the gray rollout trash containers already in use.
