Coming to Bismarck This Spring: Curbside Recycling

Posted: Updated:

  Bismarck is going green:  The City Commission commits to a nearly seven year contract for curbside recycling.

Residents had until the end of May to "opt-out" of the program due to financial or space limitations.  For everyone else, single family residences and duplexes will pay $3.81 per unit, per month.  The city says they're not yet ready for larger apartment buildings.

The good news -- for those who consider all this to be bad news -- is recycling reduces the volume of garbage.  Eventually, residents will be able to select the size of their garbage container -- and their bill.

"With the reduction in the size of the container, of course, will come a savings in the homeowner's pocketbook.  So you'll be able to have control over the cost of what you're paying for garbage," says Jeff Heintz, Bismarck Public Works.

The city will continue to retain nine of 18 recycling drop sites.  Curbside recycling is set to begin spring of 2014.
