Southeastern Montgomery Joins Recycling Totes Upgrade

Posted on January 8, 2019

SECOND AREA WILL RECEIVE NEW TOTES JANUARY 18th

Somerset County Recycling Division began to gradually roll out a new Curbside Recycling practice and equipment, which will be completely implemented County-wide within the next four years. Every household will be receiving two new 65 gallon recycling “totes” on wheels, which look similar to most trash hauler receptacles. They have wheels to easily move around and have color-coded lids that are permanently attached (see illustrations below).  This improvement to ergonomics will protect recycling pickup workers and is part of a new dual stream recycling process which will be used by Somerset County.

A second section of Montgomery will receive its totes Friday, January 18, 2019 and first use will be Friday, February 1, 2019 pick-up.  This second section includes Southeastern Montgomery households (see map).  No other sections of Montgomery are subject to the upgrade at this time.  When your totes are dropped off you will also receive a letter from Somerset County Recycling Division with detailed instructions.
