The new City of Cumberland recycling schedule starts Monday, July 1, 2019. Recycling collections will be as follows:
Mon/Tue/Wed (on your first regular trash day of the week) – Co-mingled containers recycling will be collected
Thu/Fri/Sat (on your second regular trash day of the week) – Mixed Paper recycling will be collected
Each and every week recycling collection will follow the above schedule.
So for example: if you live in South Cumberland your trash days are Tuesday and Friday. On Tuesday morning please set out trash and co-mingled (cans/bottles) recycling. Friday morning please set out mixed paper recycling (bundled newspapers, office paper, magazines & flattened boxes) paper.
Co-Mingled Containers Recycling includes: Plastic bottles/containers #1, #2, #4, #5 & #7, glass bottles/jars, metal cans. Simply place items in the Burgmeier’s recycling bin and set out on the curb on recycling day. No plastic bags in recycling bin please.
