LAS CRUCES – The first of 30,000 curbside recycling bins will arrive in Las Cruces today.
Friedman Recycling will preview one of the bright blue bins at noon. It will take 63 semi-trucks to deliver all of the bins.
“The bins are arriving earlier than expected, and that means distribution of bins to Las Cruces homes begins earlier, too – the third week of March! These bins are different from anything that’s been seen in this region, with the label melted into the lid, in an effort to help guide residents about what recycles and what doesn’t. Our company, Friedman Recycling, is honored to be the firm chosen to manage curbside recycling for Las Cruces,” said Morris Friedman, President/COO of Friedman Recycling, in a statement.
Friedman Recycling has been processing recyclables from Las Cruces and Dona Ana County for the past year, and was the winning bidder in the city’s search for a company to manage a curbside recycling program.
