From WSMV news:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Metro Public Works said they are contemplating the expansion of recycling in Bellevue due to initial success of the program. The curbside recycling pilot program started March 1.Since then, more than 30 tons of recyclables have been collected, which doesn’t even include the recycling drop-off bins in Bellevue.Currently nearly 700 homes are signed up for the program.Curbside recycling costs $40 for a storage cart and an additional $10 a month.

I know that I am hooked on the program. I recommend it to others all the time.

More on Bellevue Curbside Recycling

I’ve been reporting mostly old news lately because I’m behind. I was out of town on business after the election, then got laid off when I got back into town. The story on curbside recycling in Bellevue was published in The Tennessean on November 10. I was supposed to be in the picture but I was out of town. I was quoted in the article:

Barbara Mathieson, a Bellevue blogger, came to Mitchell’s attention after writing about trash dumping areas in Bellevue.

Along with Bellevue Chamber of Commerce executive director Cindy Tremblay, Mitchell worked with the mayor’s office to begin the pilot project, which hopes to have at least 1,000 residents signed up before it launches in January.

While Mathieson said she is behind the program, she won’t be participating.

“My husband and I are really frugal,” Mathieson said. “We have so little trash, and we make trips twice a month to the recycling center. I hope that my neighbors who don’t recycle will see how easy it is to take their trash to the curb.”

Now with both my husband and me unemployed, we’re even more frugal. Well, I am.
