Town residents are reminded that town crews will pick up recyclables on Wednesday, Nov. 10, as usual, Espy said.
During the modified holiday schedule, town residents may take their properly prepared recyclable materials to the large bins provided at the Blue Ridge Regional Jail lower parking lot, the town manager said. The bins accept newspaper (mixed paper is also accepted), #1 and #2 plastic, cardboard, aluminum and metal cans, and clear, green and brown mixed consumer glass.
“When recycling glass at the convenience center site, please place the glass directly into the bin with no bags,” Espy said. “This will keep the glass free of contaminants so that sorting will not be necessary.”
