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.
• 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 firstname.lastname@example.org; cell is 318-381-7154 and fax 318-651-0850.

* If you are interested in residential curbside recycling or business recycling please email email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org 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. Also, businesses that wish to recycle please sign-up to receive a proposal from Brent Johnson, Progressive representative.
