Dodd’s begins ‘single stream,’ asks customers to keep it loose
Surrounded by bins labeled plastic, glass and paper, Liz Dodd of Dodd’s Trash Hauling and Recycling points toward a large green bin near the rear of the recycling facility south of Newton Monday. The Gaylord Box holds an assortment of plastics, glasses and metals ready to be shipped to a sorting facility in Des Monies.
“What we’ve been doing for the past several months is we’ve been bringing the recycling back in Gaylords, and the guys have been sorting it and dropping it in there,” she said pointing to a large compactor. “And the paper we’re still baling.”
It has been a transition for the independent waste collection company. Dodd’s is in the process of going “single stream” with its recycling program, allowing customers to keep all of their plastics, metals, office and magazine papers loose in the curbside bins. They have been communicating the new process with curbside flyers and advertisements and customers can now put unsorted materials in the recycling bins.
