In Halifax, Town Manager Carl Espy reminds residents the Town of Halifax will be picking up recyclables on Friday, July 9, due to the modified holiday schedule. Regular town curbside recycling pick up will resume Wednesday, July 14, as customary.
During the modified holiday schedule, Espy said town residents may take their properly prepared recyclable materials to the large bins provided at the Halifax Adult Detention Center lower parking lot that accept newspaper (mixed paper is currently not accepted), #1 and #2 plastic, cardboard, aluminum and metal cans and mixed clear, green and brown consumer glass.
When recycling glass at the convenience center site, Espy reminds town residents to place glass directly into the bin with no bags. This will keep the glass free of contaminants so that sorting will not be necessary, he said.
