El Cerrito is rolling out its new, and vastly improved, curbside recycling program. Instead of the green bins we used to use, we'll now have one, large gray cart that we can toss all recyclables in. So there's no more separating needed and many more types of items can now be recycled. They'll be picked up the same morning as the trash but they noted something interesting - not to put the carts out if they're not full as it saves them time and fuel if there are fewer stops.
The city is giving a demonstration of the new system at the El Cerrito Recycling Center on Saturday, February 28, from 10am to 1pm.
