As many as 2,500 90-gallon recycling carts will begin showing up in St. James before the end of the month, town council members learned during their monthly work session on Thursday.
Member Wayne Deutscher reported that provider Waste Industries plans to deliver the carts on flat-bed trucks to The Members Club lower parking lot beginning Monday, January 27. The rest of the week, smaller trucks will distribute the carts throughout the community. Each cart will have a computer chip installed identifying it with a specific household.
About 100 persons responded via an e-mail survey that they wished to continue using the 18-gallon bins they already have; Waste Industries will not deliver carts to those addresses, but if later the homeowner changes his mind and wants a cart instead, he may call and the company will change-out the containers at no cost.
Those receiving new carts may choose to keep their 18-gallon bins for another use, or they may “recycle” the plastic containers by leaving them at curbside when the carts are placed there to be emptied.
With the seasonal absence of some homeowners, “There are going to be some bins out for a while,” town administrator Josann Campanello acknowledged. Considering this, Waste Industries has said it will place the carts near the garage entrance to be as out-of-sight as possible.
“It may be tumultuous for a month or two,” Deutscher said.Article From State Port Pilot
