We believe in the concept of using less, reusing more, and converting the materials we reclaim into new resources or energy. Our recycling program is one example of how that concept is becoming a reality.
Pick-up will be every OTHER week
All households in Bedford Park will receive one 65-gallon container.
All recycling must be placed in the alley by 6:00 am on the collection day.
The recycling toter should be placed in the alley every other week.
Due to the automation of the recycling truck, please keep recycling toters at least three feet from other toters, mailboxes and parked cars.
