Single Stream Recycling for Fort Pierce Begins on May 1st


 

 

Single stream recycling has been in the works since 2013 in several cities in Florida.  I was excited to see when I came home on Saturday  a big green recycling cart in my yard.  It was just like Christmas for me because I love recycling and anything that has to do with saving the earth.   This big and beautiful green cart will now be available to fill with all the recyclables in one shot.  No more separate bins here.

All of the items you currently recycle can go in this recycling cart and then some:
