IMPORTANT NOTICE - RECYCLING COLLECTION FOR THURSDAY NOVEMBER 27:


A notice to all Sparta residents who have Thursday as their regularly scheduled recycling collection day.  This coming Thursday, November 27, 2014 there will be no municipal recycling.  You can place all your recyclables at the curb on Friday morning for collection.  Blue Diamond will be collecting all of Thursday's recyclables as well as the regularly scheduled Friday collection on Friday November 28.  Any areas that are not collected on Friday due to the added volume of recyclables will be collected on Saturday morning, November 29.  If your recyclables are not collected by the end of day Friday please leave them at the curb so Blue Diamond can collect them on Saturday.  Thank you.
 

GENERAL INFORMATION REGARDING RECYCLING COLLECTION:

Starting on March 31, 2014 the utility’s hauler will begin collecting “single stream” recycling. Your collection day will remain the same, however you will now be able to place ALL RECYCLING MATERIALS in a single container and place them at the curb for collection.  Your current recycling day WILL NOT CHANGE.

IMPORTANT:

• Recycling containers must not exceed 50 pounds, 32 gallon containers are recommended.

• Use plastic bags for shredded paper only. All other material must be in a container loose, not in a plastic bag.

• Do not tie cardboard or newspapers. Put in reusable containers loose, or stack folded boxes into a cardboard box.

• Label your recycling containers with free decals available at Town Hall.

• Put all Styrofoam into the regular solid waste, it is coded #6 and is not acceptable for recycling.
