To provide more efficient collection services, the Oakland Town Commission approved a request to shift recycling pick-ups from Friday to Wednesday. The change, requested by hauler Waste Management, which recently acquired the Town’s contractor Advanced Disposal, intends to provide increased resources, more efficient route completion, and address concerns of the comingling of materials.
“The Town is committed to ensuring that residents receive the best service at the most affordable rates and this small shift will provide the needed resources for more reliable recycling collection,” said Public Works Director Mike Parker.
The start date for the change to Wednesday recycling will be Aug. 4. Collection days for garbage and yard waste will not change. Residents will be receiving a postcard from Waste Management with additional information in the coming weeks.
To “Recycle Right,” be sure to follow these guidelines when placing materials in your Town-issued recycle bins.
