Riverton to get larger recycling containers

Published: Tuesday, July 9 2013 4:11 p.m. MDT

RIVERTON — The city's recycling containers will increase in size from 65 gallons to 95 gallons.

This is a result of Riverton's new contract with Waste Management, which starts this month.

Residents are reminded to place all recycling containers, full and empty, by the curb on the normal recycling collection day from July 15-26. Waste Management will collect all of the old 65-gallon containers and provide residents with one new 95-gallon recycling container.

Because of the size difference in the containers, the need for additional containers may change. For that reason, only one recycling container will be provided to each resident at this time. The city is requesting that each resident take some time to assess their needs of any additional containers.

Additional recycling containers, for those who may need them, may be ordered starting Aug. 26. The city pays for all containers, even when they are not being used. Residents are asked not to request additional containers if they are not used most of the time.

For more information, call 801-208-3144. To order additional recycling containers after Aug. 26, call 801-208-3117 or 801-208-3144.
