Recycle Your Old Can

Some loyal readers pointed us to the Frequently Asked Question document related to the new trash/recycling program.  It pointed us to the Holliston Recycling center.

Trash Frequently Asked Questions and Answers

It pointed us to the Holliston Recycling center.  On the third page of the question document it had this question/answer: Question:  What should I do with my old containers?  You make keep them or bring them to the Marshall Street recycling center on Saturdays between 8a.m. and 3p.m.

We recently sent our 'investigative reporter' to the Recycling Center to see if in fact containers were being collected.  The pictures tell the story: a large dumpster to stack the green recycling bins and a large section for depositing barrels.

So if you are not saving your containers for other purposes, such as the composting idea Yvette shared a while back -> http://hollistonreporter.com/article/15437/put-your-can-to-work.html ; or using the green bins for moving and storage, there is a town-sponsored way for Holliston residents to get rid of their old cans.

Our thanks to Tony and Janet Alexander who provided this 'lead' to our 'investigative reporter.'

Hose out your barrels occasionally or they will smell really bad. Especially in summer.

Thank you for letting us know what we can do with the old containers. The new trash barrel is awful. 35 gallons! The way it is shaped with the indentations on the front and back one 13 gallon kitchen trash bag has to be forced into the barrel.

Storing those containers upright collects water and breeds hungry mosquitoes. Not good.
