New recycling options for Coral Springs residents

July 14, 2013

CORAL SPRINGS — It is easier now to go green in Coral Springs.  Effective immediately, residents can now recycle plastic, glass bottles and jars in all colors, tin, and vegetable and soup cans. That’s in addition to the traditional recyclable items of newspapers and inserts, soda cans and corrugated cardboard like clean pizza boxes.  In January, residents will get new 65-gallon carts for recyclables.

“Recycling allows us to keep materials such as glass, plastic, aluminum cans, juice cartons and newspaper out of the waste stream and to use these items to produce new products rather than harvest raw materials,” Public Works Director Rich Michaud said in a statement.
