Recycling is about to get a lot easier for residents in SOCRRA communities with the arrival of new rolling recycling carts. 

This is a huge undertaking – we're delivering 100,000 carts to single-family households in 11 different communities over the course of three months - July, August, September.  When will you receive your cart? Click on your community for more information.  Click here for the information packet to be delivered with carts.

 

What’s the big deal about carts?

There are many benefits to cart-based recycling. The carts are easier and more convenient to use. They also provide a greater capacity for more recyclables – which means less material going to the landfill. There are financial benefits, too! Your city gets charged to dispose of trash, but gets credit for all your recyclables, so recycling more means an overall cost savings for your city. Carts also make curbside collection more efficient and safer. 

Additionally, recycling with carts means recycling is now collected as mixed recycling.  Residents no longer are required to sort paper from plastic, metal, and glass.  Now, curbside recycling will be as easy as taking out the trash. 

In all, everyone wins when recycling with carts!

DID YOU KNOW?

Carts were tested in two SOCRRA communities, and both communities continue to use them today!  The entire City of Huntington Woods and a section of Beverly Hills.
