The bulk recycling day for Alton residents last August was a successful event, so much so that both the city and Allied Waste are doing it again today. The bulk recycling drive will be held at the old Alton Landfill from 8am until Noon and it's for Alton residents only. Last time, more than a ton of scrap metal and appliances were collected, along with nearly four tons of electronic waste and over three tons of landfill waste.
Items that will be accepted include household items, clothes, electronics, appliances and scrap metal. Items that will not be accepted include concrete, shingles, construction debris, loose trash, trash in bags and cardboard boxes, tires, and other hazardous household materials. If you have any questions, call 463-3530.
