New recycling program in Bothell

BOTHELL - The city of Bothell and Waste Management Inc. are introducing a new and greatly enhanced recycling program for Bothell customers.
   The program is part of the new contract between the city and Waste Management, signed in late 2000.
   The newly revamped recycling program begins the week of March 5, when customers will begin using one large wheeled recycling cart to gather rcyclables.
   Bothell customers will also be able to recycle additional materials such as milk cartons, frozen food boxes and all plastic bottles, jars and dairy tubs.
   Glass will be recycled separately in customers' existing recycling bins.
   "The city is excited to have this new program available to Waste Management Customers," said Public Works Director Dave Zabell. "Working with the contractor, the city is able to provide our citizens with a much higher level of service, making it easier and more convenient for all of us to do the important job of recycling."
   Waste Management has already delivered new recycling carts to all Bothell customers.
   The company will collect unwanted extra recycling bins in April.
   Waste Management serves 6,800 Bothell residential and commercial customers. It is responsible for all billing and customer services.
   Customer inquiries should be directed to (425) 814-1695.
