Chicago's Blue Cart Residential Recycling Program

Mayor Rahm Emanuel is expanding the Blue Cart Residential Recycling Program citywide in 2013!  The Blue Cart program provides bi-weekly recycling services to single family homes and multi-unit buildings with four or fewer units.  By recycling regularly, you can help reduce the need for landfills, lower disposal costs, reduce pollution and conserve natural resources, such as timber, water and minerals.
