The city’s curbside recycling program is the Earth Angel Recycling Program. A progressive recycling program eases overburdened landfills, protects the environment and reduces costs. By taking part in the Earth Angel program, the public has the opportunity to help ensure a healthy future for the community. The Earth Angel truck collects the following materials:
• Aluminum cans.
• Brown paper grocery bags.
• Corrugated cardboard.
• Plastic grades No. 1 and No. 2.
• Telephone books.
• Leaves, grass, and small brush.
The city will furnish the container and a calendar of scheduled collection days. The container should be placed curbside prior to 6 a.m. for pickup. To get involved in recycling, call 3216911.
Be on the lookout for the 2019 Earth Angel Calendar! Delivery begins Dec. 10. Simply place the recycling container out on collection day, and they will leave a new calendar inside.
