        SOLID WASTE AND RECYCLING




Solid Waste Collection

Dispose of your garbage and yard waste in the container provided by M&M Sanitation. Make sure
the lid is closed, without packing your garbage too tightly. These containers are the property of
M&M Sanitation and are assigned to your street address. For collection, place the container as
close as possible to the curb or roadside, NOT on the street. Make sure the container is at least
3 feet from mailboxes, parked cars, trees, light posts and the handle and lid hinge is facing
your residence. Please ensure the lid is closed to prevent damage to the 96 gallon cart(s).

Bulky Items

When items are too large and cannot be broken down so that they will fit into the 96 gallon cart(s),
please call our Customer Service Team to arrange a “Special Bulk Pick-Up” for a nominal collection
fee.

Disposal of Excess Garbage

If you consistently have more than the average amount of garbage each week, you may need an
additional cart. A second cart will be provided at no additional cost. Please call one of our helpful
Customer Service Representatives to discuss our service options at: (859) 936-0957
What if I move?

If you move, do NOT take the 96-gallon cart(s) with you. Please notify us of your move.

Disability Assistance

While carts are usually easier to move to their collection spot, some may have difficulty. If you have
a disability, please call our office so that we can review your needs.
Public Safety

Refuse collection can be hazardous. Make sure that children stay clear of curbside refuse and
collection trucks. Curbside refuse should not impede pedestrian walkways or public thorough-fares.
Containers must be at your curbside the night before your scheduled service day.

1. Bags/Tree limbs outside of the container must not weigh more than 30 pounds. Cut limbs into 3’

sections or less. 2. Paint containers must be empty or solidified prior to being picked up. (Use kitty

litter or sand to solidify left over paint). 3. Glass (window panes, storm doors, etc.) must be broken

up and placed in a taped box marked glass. 4. Liquids (i.e. thinners, oil, acids),

5. Medical Waste (i.e. oxygen tanks, needles), tires and propane tanks are not acceptable materials

for pick up. 6. ALL boxes need to be broken down, and placed in your 96 gallon cart for pick up.

If you have additional items for pick up (i.e. couch, stove, water heater), please call our

office for pick up day at (859) 936-0957

RECYCLING:
Residence

Boyle County Department of Solid Waste Management will be upgrading the Recycling areas of all its
Convenience Centers from July 2011 – June 2012 with the help of a grant from the Kentucky Division of Waste
Management. Please bear with us as this transformation takes place. Our intention is to make recycling drop-
off safe, convenient, and help to pay for itself. With your assistance and cooperation in recycling drop-off we
can divert solid waste cost and increase revenue through recycling commodities. If you need assistance or
have questions please speak with one of our operators, they are there to assist you. Boyle County thanks you
for recycling.

Gose Pike Drop-off Program: We realize the closing of the Recycle Center to
residential drop-off has made it difficult for some residents to participate in
Recycling. On Wednesday November 3rd we started a new program for those
residents who prefer attendant assistance for recycling drop-off. Every
Wednesday between 9am - 1pm there will be attendants to unload all vehicles of
recycle materials. We appreciate your support and encourage any suggestions
and/or comments you have. Call (859) 238-1116, Thank You for Recycling.
Out-of-County Residence

Boyle County Convenience Centers cannot accept your solid waste; call your County Solid Waste Coordinator
for your County Solid Waste Options. But we can assist out-of-county residents, especially those at our
boarders or working in Boyle County, by reducing their solid waste through recycling. Any out–of-county
residents can drop-off any recycle material accepted at our Centers. This can help to keep your solid waste
disposal cost down whether you pay by the bag or the ton. We welcome your participation and thank you for
recycling.

For-Profit Business and Industry

Boyle County Convenience Centers cannot accept your solid waste for disposal; call or e-mail Donna Fechter,
Director of Solid Waste if you need assistance with locating Solid Waste Haulers that are registered and
permitted in Boyle County. We can assist you by reducing your Solid Waste Stream through Recycling. Small
for-profit businesses such as rental property management, electricians, plumbers, carpenters ECT can drop-off
your recycled material such as cardboard, appliances, and metal. Businesses and Industry that generate a
large amount of any type of recycled material accepted in the Boyle County Recycling program please call the
Boyle County Department of Solid Waste Management for scheduled drop-off at the main Recycle Center at
1862 South Danville By-Pass. We have free paper shredding with document destruction certificate and
recycling weight documentation for your corporate office to track your solid waste reduction percentage.
Going Green in Boyle is a way to convey to your local, national, and international customer base that you care
about the environmental impact or carbon foot print your company leaves behind.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTION ABOUT CURBSIDE SINGLE STREAM RECYCLING

HAVE NO FEAR, CURBSIDE IS HERE!




  1. What does single stream mean?

     Single stream (also known as “fully commingled”) recycling refers to a system in which all
     paper fibers and containers are mixed together in a collection truck, instead of being sorted
     into separate commodities (newspaper, cardboard, plastic, glass, etc. ...

  2. Who picks up my recycling?

     M & M Sanitation (859) 936-0957

  3. What happens to my recyclables?

     It goes to a MRF - an owned and operated facility by and in the City of Lexington.

  4. What is a MRF?

     Municipal Recycling Facility

  5. Do I really put everything in my recycle container loose?

     Everything but shredded paper, it must be in a clear plastic bag. Single Stream Recycling is all
     about keeping the material loose.


  6. If Single Stream Recycling is all about keeping my material loose than why must I bag
     my shredded paper?

     When the material is brought into the MRF trucks dump the material on the floor. Loose
     shredded paper would be hard to capture, but in bags the operators can separate and maintain
     the quality of the product?
7. What if I do not want a recycling container? : (

   OH NO! Please don’t, but if you must Call M & M Sanitation 859-936-0957

8. What happens if the container at my house becomes damaged or lost?

   M & M Sanitation will replace any damage or lost container.

9. How and when should my container be put to the curb?

   For collection, place the container as close as possible to the curb or roadside, NOT on the
   street. Make sure the container is at least 3 feet from mailboxes, parked cars, trees, light
   posts and the handle and lid hinge is facing your residence. Please ensure the lid is closed to
   prevent damage to cart(s). Place your cart out the night before and do not forget to return your
   cart to the house when it has been emptied.

10. How will I know when my recycling will be picked up?

   A collection schedule has been provided with your container when it was issued. If you need
   another copy or just want to review it go to the City of Danville website www.danvilleky.org or
   call M & M at 859-936-0957

11. How will holidays affect my pick up schedule?

   This schedule applies for all residential services (trash and recycle). M&M Sanitation
   will observe the following Holidays: New Years Day, Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Labor
   Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day. M&M will NOT be servicing Residential
   customers on these Holidays. M&M will be adjusting their service schedule by one day. For
   example, if the Holiday is on a Monday, the service would be as follows: Monday service will
   occur on TUESDAY; Tuesday service will occur on WEDNESDAY; Wednesday service will
   occur on THURSDAY; Thursday service will occur on FRIDAY; Friday service will occur on
   SATURDAY. Check our local newspaper or call M&M Sanitation at (859) 936-0957


12. What if I live in an apartment or condominium complex? Can I recycle?

   Yes, you can recycle and a container should have been provided for all units in apartments or
   condominiums. Call your landlord or M & M at 859-936-0957.

13. My apartment complex is littered with unused recycle containers because we all use
    one until it is full and then go to the next. We never fill them all, what can we do?

   Have your landlord or apartment manager call M & M 859-936-0957 and they will pick up any
   unused or unwanted container.
14. What if I have more recyclables than my container can hold before my next pick-up
    day?

   You can put your excess material next to the container in a paper bag, cardboard box, or
   plastic tote. If you regularly produce more than your container can hold, call M & M and
   request another container, there is no extra charge.

15. Will the container be very heavy once it’s full?

   The design of the new containers provides leverage to assist maneuvering.
    Many residents have found this makes using a cart easier than lifting a filled 18-gallon bin or
   box of recyclables.

16. What if weather conditions cause my recycle can top to blow open?

   Use a brick or rock to hold it down. Allowing water to get into the container can cause the
   paper to degrade.

17. Can I recycle caps, lids, and plastic bags?

   No. Caps, lids, and plastic bags cannot be recycled curbside. Plastic bags can be recycled at
   your grocery store or Gose Pike Convenience Center.

18. Should I remove the labels on my bottles, cans and jars?

   No, you can leave the labels on.

19. Should I rinse my bottles, cans and jars?

   Yes. Conserve water by using dish water, bath water or rain water.

20. Where can I recycle books?

   Books can be recycled at the curb if you rip off the hard cover and rip out the pages so it is not
   so thick and you can just drop them off whole at the Gose Pike Convenience Center, or donate
   to charity.

   shredder that shreds 2 tons per hour free of charge to residents, business, industry and
   schools. Call 859-238-1116 for more information.

24. What is a waxy paper box? I noticed they were not allowed in the recycling container?

   soda boxes. They cannot be recycled at the curb. But, you can recycle soda and beer boxes
   at the Gose Pike Convenience Center Pike 859-238-1106




   REMEMBER TO TAKE YOUR CARTS OFF THE

   CURB WHEN THEY ARE EMPTY. IT IS MORE

         THAN A CITY CODE VIOLATION, IT IS A

         SAFETY HAZARD TO PEDESTRIANS AND

                                        VEHICLES
