No Recycling Collections on Windy Days
EL PASO- Recyclables will not be picked up if wind gusts reach 40 mph.
The City of El Paso will still send out it's trucks to collect garbage in the GRAY bins. Those bins are supposed to be filled with bagged and secured garbage. The mess is minimal if these bins get knocked over during a windy spell.
The BLUE bins are for the recyclables. These contain items that are never to be bagged. If the wind knocks these bins over they spill their contents and the wind will spread the mess throughout a neighborhood.
Environmental Services wants all residents to understand that if it's windy, keep the BLUE bin for another day.
