Bellevue Curbside Recycling Starts Today

My bin is out front of the house. It is so much easier than packing the recyclables into the Mini and driving to the drop off center. I’m hooked. Here’s a note from the morning Tennessean:

More than 600 Bellevue households will begin curbside recycling today, with officials hoping to increase that to 1,000 families so the pilot program can move to other parts of Metro’s General Services District.

Bellevue residents can sign up at to pay a monthly rate of $10 for curbside pickup of paper, cardboard, aluminum and metal cans, plastics and glass, according to Metro Public Works. There is a one-time cart purchase fee of $40.

Residents have the option of choosing weekly, monthly or twice-monthly collection service, and back-door collection.

EarthSavers, the Nashville-based contractor handling the pickup in the pilot area, will donate a portion of the proceeds from the recyclables collected in Bellevue to purchase books for the new Bellevue Library, according to Public Works spokeswoman Gwen Hopkins-Glascock.
