Bowie Distributes Bigger Recycling Bins

Phase Two of the bin distribution begins on Sept. 11.

Recycling is getting bigger and better for Bowie residents this week.

On Tuesday the city will begin Phase Two of the distribution of new, larger recycling bins. Any residents who did not receive one of the new 65-gallon bins in Phase One back in 2009 should receive a bin in this second phase, city officials said.

The bins are part of an effort by the city to increase recycling and possibly decrease weekly trash pick up to once a week, .

The large blue bins should be left curbside on recycling day with the handles facing the street. The city reminds residents that they should never place trash into the recycling bins. For a complete list of what can be recycled, check the city’s website.
