Important Recycling Information
The FY2016-2017 Budget placed a tremendous value in creating a better curbside recycling program for the Town of Maggie Valley’s residential community. The Town partnered with the North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality and Haywood County Government to provide each residential solid waste customer within the Town’s corporate limits with a new blue 64-gallon recycling container. Switching to this collection method signals the end of blue bag collection recycling era in Maggie Valley. A container based recycling system promotes better curbside neighborhood aesthetics and eliminates environmental and economic inefficiencies associated with blue bag collection.
Haywood County’s Materiel Recovery Center at Jones Cove Road accepts items that the Town is unable to pick up. Check out their information here.
- Residential customers may come to Town Hall to pick up their blue curbside recycling containers. These containers are 64 gallons in size and are smaller than your existing 96-gallon brown trash containers. The new recycling containers should fit in most midsize and large SUVs as well as all pick-up trucks. Once you have your new blue recycling container feel free to start using it immediately. Remember the purpose of the new containers is to eliminate the use of “blue bags” in our recycling process to promote both environmental and economic efficiencies. Just place any recyclable item directly into the container without lining it with any bags.
- For those of you who cannot pick up your new recycling container in person at Town Hall due to time constraints or vehicle limitations the Town’s Public Works Department will hand deliver a container directly to your home. Once you have your new blue recycling container feel free to start using it immediately. Remember the purpose of the new containers is to eliminate the use of “blue bags” in our recycling process to promote both environmental and economic efficiencies. Just place any recyclable item directly into the container without lining it with any bags. We anticipate this delivery option to be the most popular with our residents so please be patient as it will take several weeks of delivery routes to make sure everyone who needs a container, has a container.
- Since the announcement was made about the Town’s new curbside recycling program featuring container based recycling collection, some residents expressed concerns about not wanting to be issued our standard 64-gallon blue container because of its large size. These concerns are completely reasonable but the Town does not want you to stop recycling. If you do not wish to receive a blue container, please contact Town Hall directly by phone 828.926.0866 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org. Instead of recycling using the Town issued container, you can use your own smaller container. Just place your personal container at the curb with all of your loose comingled recyclables in it—do not place these recyclables in any type of bag or they will not be collected. Recyclables placed inside of your Town issued “brown container” will also not be collected.
If you have additional questions regarding our Container Based Curbside Recycling Program just let us know, we are here to help.
