New Recycling/Garbage Cans from the Golden Triangle BID

These are great. From a press release:

The Golden Triangle Business Improvement District (BID) is making recycling easier for neighborhood workers and visitors with the installation of 58 dual-flow trash/recycling bins in the central business district. The BID currently maintains 280 trashcans within its 43 block area and plans to convert all cans to dual-flow bins in the next couple of years.

Last year, the BID launched a pilot program to co-locate 10 recycling cans with existing trashcans throughout the neighborhood for the purpose of collecting recycling data. The information gathered helped determine the need to provide a recycling option and the public’s response showed a desire to be environmentally-conscious. The dual-flow cans divide the bin to provide a recycling or trash option, but don’t add clutter to the street. The District’s single-stream recycling guidelines mean paper, aluminum, glass and plastic are comingled and collected in a single bin.
