RECYCLING BIN UPDATE
We created an online survey that polled our residents to see if there was much interest in offering recycling bins. We got back around 140 responses with 137 of them being interested in recycling bins.
Yakima Waste has offered to provide the bins starting in October. The cost will be apx. $9.50 per month for one 64 gallon cart, picked up every other week.
This service is optional and if you are interested, you will need to contact Yakima Waste to order the service. Unlike the regular garbage service the city provides, Yakima Waste will take the orders and do the billing, separate from the city billing for the regular garbage.
You can call them now to sign up for the service and they plan to start delivering the bins in October. The contact number for Yakima Waste is 509-248-4213.
