Maplewood to roll out recycling carts


Maplewood will soon replace recycling bins with carts, costing the city $2.50 per month per household. The recycling rate for residents is already set at $2.94 per month.

Maplewood will soon roll out recycling carts, allowing residents to bring more recyclables to the curb -- and cover them with a lid.
The carts will replace all residents' topless bins by about March, tentatively, according to city staff.
The Maplewood City Council in December voted 4-1 to replace the basic bins, which have cost the city $1.75 per month per household. The new contract costs the city $2.50 per month per household the first two years, and $2.75 in 2016 and 2017.
