Also in West Monroe they will service Homeowners Associations at this time.

Residential Curbside Recycling
* Cost $7.00 monthly, payment directly to Progressive, pick-up will be weekly. Progressive will provide receptacles at no cost to residents. The receptacles are the size of the trash receptacles that residents currently use.
* Streamline Recycling – means Progressive accepts paper, newspaper, magazines, tin and steel, aluminum foil, aluminum cans, plastics (1-7) and cardboard. No Styrofoam, glass or film plastic bags (grocery bags). Items do not have to be sorted; they do have to be clean.

Business Recycling
• Cost – $60.00 monthly, 8 yard containers, pickup once a week, $120.00 for pickup twice a week. Rates for some businesses will vary due to size and use. Brent Johnson will work with businesses to develop a customized proposal. His email is brjohnson@iesi.com; cell is 318-381-7154 and fax 318-651-0850.

If you are interested in residential curbside recycling or business recycling please email cathycheek@att.net or brjohnson@iesi.com put “Monroe Recycles” in the subject box. We still need residents who are interested to sign up; our community has to reach 3,000 before Progressive can start. Then the turnaround is 90 days, Progressive will have to order receptacles for all the residents and the routes established.
