The Department of Public Works (DPW) has added a system for collecting vegetable oil to its existing food waste collection program at the Locust Street Recycling Center. Residents can deliver cooking oil in their original containers or in clearly marked clear plastic bottles to the middle bay of the recycling shed at no cost. Residents and businesses are reminded that they shouldn’t pour oil down the drain or put greasy liquids in their trash. For more information about how to participate in the food waste collection program, call 587-1059.
The DPW is also accepting pumpkins leftover from Halloween for composting until November 15th. For residents with vehicle permits that provide access to the City’s two recycling centers, they can drop off their jack-o-lanterns for free. At the DPW recycling facility, a specially marked container is stationed near the trash compactor. At the landfill drop-off site, residents with vehicle permits can deposit their pumpkins directly into the leaf pile.
