All Together Now – Recycling just got easier in Statesville thanks to a new recycling station in the parking lot of the Statesville Police Department on Sharpe St.  There, citizens can mix all their recyclables together including some new items – cardboard and all colors of glass. 

The City will contract with Benfield Sanitation Services to provide the container and empty it as needed.  Benfield opened a materials recycling facility (MRF) last year that allows them to accept recycling materials all mingled together. 

The complete list of items accepted at the new recycling unit is:

Cardboard: empty and flattened (no boxes with food debris such as pizza boxes)
Glass: all colors of jars and bottles
Plastic Containers: Recycle #1-7 (mostly beverage, food and detergent, but no Styrofoam or plastic wrap and bags.  Look for the number on the bottom of the container to see if it is acceptable.)
Mixed Paper: magazines, phone books, newspapers and inserts, mail (junk and personal), computer paper, flyers, wrapping paper (no foil or plastic wrap) beverage cartons and food boxes (remove plastic liner and no food soiled paper, please)
Cans: clean tin and aluminum food and beverage cans 

The single stream recycling container will be available beginning Tuesday, March 20.  Discarded items can be bagged or loose.  The City’s curbside recycling program will remain the same.
