Recycling Drop-Off Day: Saturday Oct. 4th

Posted By on Fri, Sep 26, 2008 at 6:31 PM

If you don't already subscribe to the twice-monthly Phoenix Recycling curbside pick-up service for a nominal $15 a month, you need to:

Mark Oct 4th  on your calendar, stop throwing recyclables in your trash for one week, and bring them to the drop off event next Saturday.

The drop off event is one of several once-quarterly-now-monthly drop off events sponsored by the City of New Orleans to attempt to placate those who want to see a real citywide curbside recycling program implemented.

It is a good thing though, so you should do it.

Materials that will be accepted include plastic containers, cardboard, paperboard, shredded paper in bags, newspaper, and metal containers such as aluminum, tin and steel. The ARC of New Orleans will also accept Mardi Gras beads and throws.

The event goes from 9 am until noon. On the East Bank recyclables from residents will be collected under the overpass at N. Claiborne Ave and St. Peters Street; on the West Bank they will be collected at the public library at General DeGaulle and Holiday Ave.

Future dates for drives include November 15th and December 6th. For more info see the City's web site.
