Earth An­gel

The Sentinel-Record - - LIFESTYLES -

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.

• Newsprint.

• 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.
