Tampa, FL June 24, 2008 - The City is expanding its recycling program and as of July 1st, residents may place phone books, paperback books, junk mail, cereal boxes, 6-pack soda boxes, office paper and cardboard in their blue recycling bins in addition to the already accepted materials:
• Newspapers & inserts
• Plastic bottles (numbers 1 and 2 only)
• Aluminum and steel cans (including empty aerosol cans)
• Gable-top beverage containers (juice & milk containers)
• Glass bottles & jars (all colors)
The Department of Solid Waste is asking residents to make sure that cardboard is flattened and cut down to fit in blue bins (a maximum of 3 ft squares). If you have large quantities of cardboard, it may be dropped off, at no charge, at the Manhattan Brush Site, 7215 S. Manhattan Avenue, or the McKay Bay Refuse-To-Energy Facility at 107 N. 30th Street.
Recycling is the easiest way to be “green.” Do your part to help conserve our natural resources and “Remember to Recycle.”
