Todd Nienhouse, District Manager of Waste Management of Stockton presents Gordon MacKay from the City of Stockton a $4,000 Think Green Grant for use in promoting proper recycling.
...to Recycle Often. Recycle Right℠.
Help Stockton to be a green city and add some green to your wallet. It’s easy when you Recycle Often. Recycle Right.℠ – the new campaign from Waste Management and the City of Stockton. Our goal is to eliminate trash in recycling carts.
Starting in June 2014, Waste Management will inspect its residential customers' recycling cart for the presence of trash. If a customer’s cart contains only recyclable materials, the customer will be entered into a weekly drawing for a $50 reward card*. Carts with trash will be tagged and the lid will be labeled with What’s Recyclable/What’s Not. During subsequent audits, if trash is found in the recycling cart, the customer will be charged an extra trash pickup fee of $8.22 and could be required to increase the trash cart size.Good recycling habits go a long way in keeping your costs down. This website contains information and downloadable materials to help you Recycle Often. Recycle Right.℠
What goes into your recycling cart? Items on the left should go into your recycling cart. Keep the Dirty Dozen on the right out of your recycling cart, they contaminate recyclables.
