no-sort recycling

Tallahassee residents are saying goodbye to their two-sided recycle bins as workers replace dividers with new lids this week. City officials hope to encourage more recycling by doing away with the need for sorting.

A forklift unloaded pallets from a big rig on Tallahassee’s Southside Monday morning as city Solid Waste Administrative Services Manager Rita Taylor looked on.

“They’ve just gotten a shipment of lids in and they’re taking them off and putting them in the warehouse," she explained.
