Recycling Rallies Promote Jan. 5 Rollout

Representatives from the City’s Sanitation Department, along with community recycling advocates, will rally at the corner of Abercorn and Mall Blvd. from 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. on Jan. 3 to draw attention to the City’s rollout of curbside recycling on Jan. 5.

Over the past month, 96-gallon, black and yellow recycling carts have been delivered to 48,000 households throughout Savannah. The carts are our citizens’ connection to Savannah’s state-of-the-art curbside system, called “single-stream recycling.” Single-stream recycling, a new technology, is the most user-friendly of all recycling systems. It allows residents to drop a variety of clean recyclables – – plastic and glass bottles, metal cans, paper and cardboard — into one recycling container, with no sorting required.

As citizens await the start of curbside recycling collection, they are encouraged to familiarize themselves with the process, and create a system within their homes for separation of household trash from recyclable materials. Recycling carts were accompanied by a packet that included a handy recycling guide, a pickup schedule, and other useful information. Residents can learn more by visiting savannahga. gov or calling 311.
