Knoxville Residents - FREE Curbside recycling is on it's way!!!

The City of Knoxville is finally starting a curbside recycling program.
For 20,000 lucky City of Knoxville residents you will get a free recycling bin and free pick-up 
of your recyclables - no sorting required!
Read all about the program HERE
To see if you are one of the lucky 20,000 go HERE to fill out your info -
I was not a lucky one :(
And just a note - I could not open the link using Google Chrome, I had to switch over to IE.

Here is what they have to say

No sorting by type of recyclable item - all recyclables go into the recycle cart together.

Cart provided by the City of Knoxville and will be delivered to your house in September of this year. The cart is on wheels to make it easy for you to roll it to the curb.

Pick up at your curb - household recyclables will be picked up curbside every other week. The pick-up service will begin in October of this year. 

No additional cost to you as a resident of the City of Knoxville with household garbage collection service. The City's initial curbside recycling program will be offered to the first 20,000 households that sign up. This new service is funded in part by a grant from the Federal government and through recommended cost saving measures to the City's overall solid waste program.

RecycleBank is a rewards program that provides you with discounts on goods and services based on the pounds of materials you recycle.

Good for our East Tennessee environment by helping reduce the volume of materials going into landfills.

Households in the City limits of Knoxvillethat receive weekly garbage collection are eligible for the program. Apartments of more than four units are not eligible for this program but may continue to use the drop centers for their recycling needs.
