In Cameron, recycling is now picked up on the same day as household trash. That means the trash-haulers may mistakenly pick up recyclables mixing them with the regular trash. In order to ensure that recyclables are collected separately, we continue to use a program that involves the use of recycling bins in which recyclables are placed and set by the edge of the street. The use of a recycling bin is required in order to participate in the weekly pick-up program.
Strong winds and neighborhood pets will scatter trash if it is not rinsed or prepared properly. It is not the collector’s responsibility to clean up messes. Prepared glass, plastic, and metal cans should be placed in secured see-through bags or bundled for curbside pick-up. Please place newspaper and magazines in brown paper bags and flatten cardboard. When citizens deliver recyclables to the collection bins, please separate items into the appropriate container. Remember: People, not machines collect and sort your recyclables. Please treat them with respect by following these easy guidelines. View more recycling guidelines
