Collect batteries in a specially-designed bucket which comes with a shipping box and pre-paid postage, both Alkaline-Nickel and Lead Acid buckets are available.  Learn more at www.wmlamptracker.com

MANDATORY RECYCLING REQUIREMENTS
Mandatory recycling in the City of Albany has been in effect since July 1, 2012 for businesses and institutions with 4 or more cubic yards of garbage service as well as multi-family properties with 5 or more units. Phase 2 of the Mandatory Recycling Ordinance began July 1, 2014, which adds food scraps and compostable paper to the “Covered Materials” list. It also requires all businesses to participate (not just those with 4 or more cubic yards of weekly garbage service). Visit http://www.recyclingrulesac.org to learn more.
