Beginning in April 2019, the City of Kingston shifted our recycling collection to Dual Stream Recycling, in which:
Paper and Cardboard ONLY should be placed curbside every other week in a new blue tote with a yellow lid.
Glass, Plastic and Metal ONLY should be placed curbside every alternating week in your current blue tote.
Trash pickup will continue as normal.
In order to foster this transition, CASCADE, the City's Tote Vendor, delivered a new additional blue recycling tote, with a yellow lid, for recycling of PAPER and CARDBOARD ONLY in the end of March 2019.
Additionally, the City Public Works Department switched your existing black lid that is affixed onto your current blue recycling tote, with a new blue lid, and this tote is now used for recycling Glass, Plastic, and Metal ONLY.
Each residence received, via the US Postal Service mail, a mailer Recycling Flyer, which we encourage you to put up on your fridge for easy access. This shows all materials to be recycled, and in which locations. Additionally, to assist in the transition, the new lids all have labels affixed to the lids which show exactly which items to recycle in which bins.
Please also find the same mailer information, below. Also, please find the current recycling calendar.
