Recycling will soon become easier and more convenient for Shoreview residents. Eureka Recycling will provide weekly curbside recycling pickup beginning Dec. 30. Pickup days will remain the same for all residents — bins should be placed on the curb by 6 a.m. on recycling day.
“We are very excited to provide this expanded service,” said Mayor Sandy Martin. “It will make recycling collection more straightforward and allow residents to recycle at even greater levels.” More than 90% of Shoreview households take part in the recycling program. The Shoreview Environmental Quality Committee supports the move to weekly recycling.
The increased cost of weekly recycling service is less than $2 per month. The city recycling fee will increase from $48 to $70 per year, less than $6 per month for a household. Recycling fees pay for weekly collection and spring and fall cleanup days.
Eureka Recycling offers an app for smartphone and desktop users. The app offers route alerts in case of weather delays, recycling day reminders and calendars for holiday schedules.
