While the orange RFID bin program continues, with regular recycling customers receiving a discounted rate on their solid waste bills, a major change takes effect, starting on September 1 with a new recycling calendar to the end of the year.

As of September 1, the BPU transitions to collection of recyclables separated into five categories, with the weekly collections as follows:  paper, glass, metal, plastic and cardboard/box board.  Each category of recyclable will have its own week of collection as part of a revised four-month schedule through the end of the year.
