WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Hundreds of brand new, big, blue recycling carts hit the streets of Wilmington today. They are a part of the city’s voluntary program to get residents to recycle more and save money.

The 19,000 wheeled recycling carts arrived at the city’s Operations Center to be assembled.

The city delivered the first of them to customers that chose to participate.

“This year we’re estimating 6,800 tons of recycling as opposed to trash that would have normally gone into the landfill, so environmentally, it’s definitely the best thing to do,” Solid Waste Superintendent Dave Bundick said.

The bi-weekly recycling pick-up will start the beginning of January. All 19,000 carts will be out to customers by December 1.
