The Takoma Park Public Works Department has purchased 100, 32-gallon recycling containers for use by city residents. The containers that have two wheels and an attached lid are similar to the large wheeled carts that the county provides to residents in the unincorporated sections of the county for storage and recycling.
The city council authorized the purchase of 100 of the larger containers as a pilot program and they will be available on a first come, first served basis. The receptacles can be picked up at Public Works, located at 31 Oswego Ave., or call to request a delivery.
Those who receive the containers will be asked to participate in a survey after a few months of use. Contact the Public Works office at 301-891-7633 to learn more about the wheeled recycling carts.
