ALACHUA COUNTY - Alachua County and the City of Gainesville are pleased to announce that the residential curbside recycling program has been expanded to include mixed office paper and junk mail. These items should be placed in the Orange Bin along with newspaper, magazines, catalogs, brown paper bags and corrugated cardboard.  Residents are reminded to place their Blue Bin on top of their Orange Bin to prevent paper from being blown into the street or other yards.
The City and County would like to thank SP Recycling Corp. and Waste Management, Inc. for their assistance in expanding the curbside recycling program. Their cooperation made this expansion possible at no additional cost to residents.
Please call Alachua County at (352) 338-3233 or the City of Gainesville at (352) 334-2330 for additional information.
