The combination of an increase in materials recycled by the citizens of La Porte City and new recycling containers provided by the City will result in a permanent change in the schedule for curbside recycling pickup. This change goes into effect on December 1.
Residents who have garbage pickup on Mondays and Wednesdays will continue to have their recycling picked up on the first and third Thursday of each month. For the month of December, the recycling pickup days for these residents will be December 5th and December 19th.
Residents who have garbage pickup on Fridays will now have their recycling picked up on the second and fourth Thursday each month. For the month of December, recycling for these residents will be collected on December 12th and December 24th. Please note: Because of the Christmas holiday, the recycling that would normally be picked up on December 26th (fourth Thursday), will be collected two days earlier on the 24th.
Copies of the 2014 recycling schedule have been sent to all residents as part of their November utility billing.
