EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY: DAPHNE RECYCLING PROGRAM CHANGES
In an effort to alleviate employee contact with bins & materials and facilitate transition to automated recycling collection, the City Council mandated the following changes to the Daphne recycling program:
• All material must be placed inside a city provided blue rolling recycling cart (recycling bins & loose materials are no longer allowed)
• Your recycling cart should be placed curbside on the same day as your scheduled garbage collection (there will no longer be a separate recycling collection day)
Changes will go into effect Monday, April 13, 2020.
Your city provided recycling bins may be exchanged for a rolling cart. To schedule an exchange or with any other questions, contact Daphne Public Works at 251-620-2100. Thank you for your understanding of our need to protect both our citizens & employees during these challenging times.
(See Resolution 2020-24 adopted April 6, 2020)
