CHINA GROVE — This week, residents will see a difference in their garbage collection and a return to recycling collection.
The town contracted with Crash Morrison Garbage Services Inc. and S.H.A.R.K.S. Recycling Inc. of Rockwell who will provide services throughout the town twice a week.
The recycling program is at no additional cost to residents.
Some residents have probably already received their new blue recycling and dark gray garbage bins. All together 2,000 garbage and recycling bins will be delivered by week’s end.
The blue recycling bin is 65 gallons while the gray garbage bin is 95 gallons. The company provides single-stream recycling, which means customers don’t have to sort items.
“They will empty the cans and put them back on the street. If people would leave the old garbage cans there, they wil be picked up,” said Interim Town Manager Ken Deal.
Waste Management, the company that used to handle the town’s curbside garbage, will collect the old bins.
The schedule is:
• West side, moves from a Tuesday pick up to Wednesday.
• East side, moves from a Wednesday pickup to Thursday.
Sections are divided by Main Street.
For more information about garbage or recycling collection or a missed pickup, contact both companies at 704-279-3385.
Contact reporter Shavonne Potts at 704-797-4253.
