For those of you wondering this morning how in the world you're going to remember when to place your recycling by the curb, the city says it's going to have you covered.
The City Council last night approved a plan to scale back recycling collection from weekly to every other week. And this morning, I've received many calls from residents worried that they won't know when their recycling will be scheduled for collection.
I called Erin Treadwell, a spokeswoman at the city's solid waste division, and she said the city is already working on several tools to help keep residents informed.
For the tech-savvy, the city is in the early stages of developing an app for iPhones and Android phones that would send alerts to remind people when their recycling is up for collection.
But for those who might be a little more, um, traditional, the city will likely also send out mail pieces and ask neighborhood associations to print schedules in their newsletters. There will almost certainly be magnets with schedules, too.
"There are going to be a host of ways we're going to be doing the reminders, both old school and through social media, digital (reminders) and mobile apps," Treadwell said.
