Forest Acres to Roll Out 95-Gallon Recycle Carts for All Residents

Posted Friday, May 3, 2019

Forest Acres City Council is excited to announce a major upgrade to the City’s Recycling Program. Starting May 16, 2019, residents will begin receiving new recycling roll carts and the City will begin servicing the new carts on June 3, 2019. Information on the schedule for pick up will be provided on every cart. The 95-gallon roll carts will be very similar to the carts currently used for household garbage but will be uniquely marked for recycling. Replacing the older 18-gallon bins has been a goal of City Council for the past 3 years, but the cost of ordering 5,000 roll carts at one time has limited the City’s progress. Thanks to the work of Representative Kirkman Finley, Representative Beth Bernstein, and Senator Mia McLeod, the City was able to secure grant funding through the state to make this project possible.
