News from Bellevue Curbside Recycling Program

FIVE MONDAYS—You may have noticed on your calendar that June has five Mondays.  That means there will be an extra week between your last collection in June and the next one in July.  Once a quarter, there will be one month that has five Mondays.  When in doubt about your schedule, login to your online account to see your next scheduled collection date.

OVERFLOW COLLECTION—Beginning in July we are offering a new service.  Until now we have not been collecting overflow – that is, materials left outside of your recycling container.  Beginning in July we WILL collect overflow for a $5 fee.  Here’s how it will work:
We will collect materials left outside your container
Place your overflow in a bag or cardboard box and set it out by your cart
The driver will leave a note that your account will be charged $5 for the extra materials
The $5 extra will be added to your next automatic charge (e.g., If your quarterly charge is normally $30, the charge for the next quarter would be $30 + $5 for each time we collect items outside your cart)

LEAVE YOUR CART OUT—Curbside customers please make sure your container is at the curb by 7am, and please give us until 8pm to collect.  Our routes are full, and we routinely run into the evening hours.    And the order of stops is constantly changing, so we could come to your house at any time within that window.

Thank you for your cooperation and patience as our curbside recycling service has expanded very quickly in Bellevue and other parts of Nashville.  Thank you for setting the example for your community to reduce, reuse, and recycle.
