The City uses a Single-Stream Recycling collection system, consisting of fibrous and non fibrous materials. The Company will not be required to sort any Recyclables but may have to hand load overflow cardboard left beside the Recyclable Container. It is the purpose of these specifications to provide a framework for accomplishing the tasks that result in maintaining quality, safe, and sanitary Residential Recycling Collection Services for the residents of the City of Charlotte. The intent of the Services is to collect all Recyclables properly placed out for collection within the City limits.
