Weekly Single Stream Recycling: Sept. 8

by Jessie Schmitt

Here is an excerpt from a post on the Melrose Recycles Blog. To read the rest of the post click here.

Starting with the week of September 8, Melrose is making major changes in its recycling program.

From that point forward, curbside recycling pickup will take place every week. In addition, recycling has been switched to “single stream,” which means that recyclable items do not have to be sorted into separate bins for paper and plastic, glass and aluminum.

With single stream, all recyclable items can go into one container, although it is not mandatory. Melrose residents who would like to sort recyclables into two bins can continue to do so.

Recycling will be collected every week on the same day as trash pickup.
