Submitted by: Precept Partners
Borden Waste-Away Awarded City of Warsaw Indiana Recycling Collection Contract Beginning January 1, 2011.
Warsaw, IN (OPENPRESS) December 31, 2010 -- The City of Warsaw Indiana has chosen Borden Waste-Away as the new recycling hauler for residents included in the City contract. Borden Waste-Away will begin services January 1, 2011 with additional information available at WasteAwayGroup.com.
"We are pleased to be the chosen recycling hauler for the City of Warsaw contract," said Ken Himes, President of Waste-Away Group, Ltd., "Warsaw is a great community to add to our family of customers. Our recycling service provides residents the ability to recycle almost 2 ½ times the present volume".
Participating residents need to place their current recycling carts out on Monday, December 27. These carts will be removed and the new Borden carts will be delivered from December 27 to 30, 2010. Each resident will receive a grey 96 gallon cart on wheels with a blue lid to collect recycling. This larger Borden cart replaces the current City owned cart.
Himes said his company is expanding the plastic items allowed in the single stream recycling program. "We are allowing residents to recycle plastics numbered 1 through 7. This is an improvement by including plastics #3 through #7," he said. Notably, Waste Away Group owns a recycling facility located in Elkhart, Indiana, which gives Borden Waste-Away the ability to offer a greater amount of recycling options. Recycling operations can be viewed online at: WasteAwayGroup.com/recycling-works-waste-management-services.html
Recycling materials in Warsaw can be placed in the container without separation:
Newspaper, Magazines, Slick Ad Paper, Cardboard, Telephone Books, Aluminum and Metal Cans, Plastics #1-#7, Glass Bottles and Jars.
Warsaw Residents will receive recycling service every other week and Borden will be servicing the city two days per week. Along with the new recycling cart, each participating Warsaw resident will receive a magnetic calendar showing their service day and additional recycling information.
Borden Waste-Away is also offering Warsaw residents The Pink Cart™, a bright-pink recycling cart supporting cancer awareness programs. Borden Waste-Away and the manufacturer of The Pink Cart™, Cascade Cart Solutions, will donate a total of Five Dollars for each Pink Cart™ placed into service to support the Mishawaka American Cancer Society.
