Is Maplewood recycling back to Mondays again?

It was on Tuesdays, right?  Why am I the only person with my bins out? Did I miss some announcement? Was I hallucinating?


We're Tuesdays, I believe they split it into two days to ensure everything was picked up.

Oh, and our bins are out now.

 I feel less alone. Maybe my neighbors are dogging it this week.


Recycling is Monday or Tuesday depending on where you live.  In my neighborhood, Prospect Street is the dividing line.  Prospect Street and east on Monday.  West of Prospect Street on Tuesday.  With spotty/reduced mail delivery, I find I am putting out recycling less often, averaging once every two to three weeks.

Socially sophisticated recyclers wait more than an hour to set our their bins. Anything between 5 p.m. and 6:04-ish is gauche.


Anything after 6:04 am on collection day won't get your recycling collected in my neighborhood.  Basso starts early.  When I look out my window at 6 am, the recycle bins are already empty.


It's my recollection (which may very well incorrect) that we are not supposed to put recycling out before 6:00 p.m., the evening before recycling day.

BTW, Moammar, did your recycling get picked up?

“Designated recyclable materials may be placed at curbside no earlier than 5:00 p.m. on the day preceding collection and no later than 6:30 a.m. on the day of collection.”

(“Recollection.” Well chosen.)


DaveSchmidt,

Thank you.
