The City’s annual “blue bag letters” were mailed this week and should have arrived in mailboxes. The letters can be taken to one of several City facilities (listed in the letter) to be redeemed for two rolls of 26 blue recycling bags (52 total). There is no expiration date on the letters (past years’ letters are still redeemable as well). Note: At City Hall, the blue bag pickup table is just inside the west entrance doors, not in the Grand Hall.

Through the Blue Bag Program, homeowners can combine all of their recyclable material into one bag and place it out for weekly pickup service. A list of items that are accepted can be found on the City’s recycling web page, which also includes maps showing the weekly recycling pickup days for various areas of the city. The City also provides a drop-off recycling center that is open to residents from 7 a.m.-9 p.m. seven days a week, located at the Westside Pump Station, 101 N. Cottonwood Dr.
