The City announced today residents in areas serviced by Metro Disposal and Richard’s Disposal can start signing up to receive recycling carts. (Visit this website to register, fill in an application at City Hall or fax it to 658-3801.)
There's no timeline for when the program will begin — the mayor's office said services begin sometime in the "second quarter." Acceptable recyclable materials for pickup include papers, plastic Nos. 1-7, cans and cardboard. (Glass recycling will continue its streak of unavailability in New Orleans.)
Meanwhile, the city's recycling drop off at 2829 Elysian Fields Ave. remains open Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.
