The City of Perry has a once a week single stream based collection program that has been contracted out to Advanced Disposal. Single stream recycling is a process in which curbside recyclables are collected from residences in a single, fully co-mingled container and later separated and processed into marketable commodities. Single stream recycling also allows for the collection of a wide range of materials. Curbside single stream collection on a single wide scale represents a significant opportunity for the City to divert as much recyclables from the waste stream as possible. The recycling program also helps the City to meet mandated waste reduction goals. Providing curbside single stream recycling can also be developed according to the needs of the City’s recycling program, budget and residential needs. Curbside single stream offers residents the most convenient way to recycle at the curbside.
