It's Here Ocala. Now what?
You toss it; they take it. That's what. The City of Ocala’s highly anticipated curbside recycling program officially begins April 2nd, and Waste Pro is making it so easy you’ll have no excuse not to participate.
What you’ve got
Waste Pro has provided each City of Ocala resident with a cart or bin to use for recycling. For now, stick with what they gave you. If after 90 days you think you’d like a different size, call and let them know.
What you do
Fill ‘er up. Because the city opted to go with the “single-stream” program, you don’t have to separate anything. Whether you are using one of the larger curbside carts for your residential home, or a smaller blue bin for a multi-family complex, just toss your recyclables in all together. For a full list of acceptable recyclable materials visit our website: recycle.ocalafl.org. Then, it’s as easy as 1…2…3…
1. Residential- Wheel your cart to your curb.
2. Multi-family complex- Take your bin and dump it into the recycle dumpster.
3. Leave the rest to Waste Pro. Your part is done!
The Down & Dirty
Now that you are going to be recycling like a champ, you won’t have nearly as much garbage! You will be directly contributing to the conservation of landfill space and an environmentally friendly movement. So yeah- go ahead and brag about it. We will. What should you expect? Three trucks in one day. Because you’ll have less garbage, we’re dropping down to one day a week pick-up for garbage, yard waste and recycling, so make sure you know your day! Route maps and pick up days are listed on the website.
