Did You Know?
In October 2012 the City of Monroe converted from small recycling bins to BLACK 95 gallon roll-out carts. Why did we choose black instead of blue or green? The black recycling carts are made from 50% recycled materials.
City Recycling Incentive Program
Each month ten residents are randomly selected to participate in this program. City staff notifies these residents that the contents of their recycle bin will be monitored weekly for one month. Points are given for the number of commodities being recycled, the cleanliness of the material, and the ratio between the garbage cart and recycle bin. The resident with the most points is rewarded $50.00. The first place winner who has the highest points during the year will be awarded $500.00.
The City of Monroe provides recycling collection as part of your garbage collection at no additional charge. Recycling is collected every other week on the same day as garbage collection.
