On March 26 – 28, 2012 Western Disposal will be conducting a study of the materials in residential trash to understand how much recyclable material is going to the landfill. We will have two extra trucks picking up residential trash carts based on size for this project. If it appears our trash truck missed your cart it is likely that a different truck will be coming along soon to pick it up. All trash will be picked up by the end of the day on your regular collection day.
The results of this audit will help us better understand the types of materials that are not being diverted to recycling or compost; as part of our Next Steps to Zero Waste efforts with the City of Boulder we will use this information to design further educational programs that help our customers understand their diversion options. Thank you for recycling and composting!
