New Curbside Recycle Program

August 1, 2014 by HCMUD 71

Recycling day is every Friday
Please have trash AND recyclables out by 7:00 am

The District has partnered with Best Trash to offer a curbside recycling program. Ensuring the best recycle program for our customers takes time and effort on both sides. Please remove caps, liquids and food products from inside the containers. Please only use the recycle bins for recyclable materials, not as an extra trash container, unless it is CLEARLY marked “RECYCLING”.

Best Trash will collect all paper products, plastics 1-7, aluminum and tin cans and all colors of glass that are placed within the provided recycling bin. If items exceed container capacity, please place them adjacent to bin in well marked as RECLYCLING in containers or bins up to 40 gallons in size. The District will provide each current residence with one recycling bin. Best Trash will drop off the new recycling bin the week of May 27th, and Best Trash will replace any bins that are defective or otherwise become unusable due to normal wear and tear. Theft, lost, or additional bins can be replaced at $9.00 each by calling Best Trash.
