With our most recent garbage contract, Montgomery was able to negotiate covered carts for both recyclable and normal household waste containers. These wheeled carts have made a noticeable difference in the flow of unwanted litter throughout our neighborhoods and our water basins. But, we can do more. First, please be informed about what materials are and are/not recyclable. Plastic bags are not recyclable at curbside. They should be bagged and returned to a number of retail stores (Walmart, Jewel, Walgreens) which do protect the environment by recycling plastic bags. Styrofoam is also not recyclable and it is one of the most common forms of neighborhood litter pollution. Place styrofoam in plastic bags to keep it contained, and then place it in your garbage cart. You’ll be doing us all a favor.
