Bismarck residents set to begin single-sort curbside recycling program; pickup starts Monday


BISMARCK, North Dakota — Bismarck residents are set to begin participating in the city's new single-sort curbside recycling program.

Pickup is scheduled to begin Monday and will continue every two weeks thereafter.

The Bismarck Tribune ( ) reports that slightly more than 12,100 residents have agreed to participate in the program.

Participants won't have to sort their recyclables. Instead, they can throw them all in the 96-gallon green carts with yellow lids that the city has delivered to their homes.

Residents will be charged $3.81 per month for the service.

Bismarck residents previously could drop off recyclables at 18 city locations. Now, there will be only nine. Drop site locations can be found online at .
