Last week, we posted a quiz about Bridgeville’s recycling rules. Soon after, some residents pointed out that corrugated cardboard left out for Waste Management on recycling days isn’t always picked up.
We talked to borough manager Lori Collins today, and here’s what we learned:
Waste Management is strictly enforcing the rule that corrugated cardboard must be flattened and cut down to pieces no larger than 14-inches by 14-inches.
A Waste Management supervisor said that some Bridgeville residents are not cutting down and flattening their boxes before putting them out for recycling.
Yes, that’s not the most convenient size, and yes, that probably means that much of your cardboard needs to be cut before being put out for recycling. But that’s the maximum size that Waste Management accepts in Bridgeville.
Here is a list of rules for Bridgeville’s recycling program.
If you are cutting down your boxes and they’re still not being picked up, you can contact Waste Management at 1-800-866-4460.
