The Department of General Services will operate advanced recycling trucks that will use an arm to lift and empty a special City of Albany recycling cart from driveways where feasible. This system is safer, easier, and cleaner than a traditional recycling program.
Recycling is mandatory in the City of Albany, and this new program will help make that more convenient for residents. The program will still be single stream, so all recyclable materials can be placed in the new carts without being sorted. These carts will be more than twice the size of the current recycling bins, allowing residents to recycle more and waste less.”
