In a continuing effort to provide the highest quality service to the town of Silt, Waste Management is exchanging 18-gallon recycling bins to one, 96-gallon recycle tote. Due to this change, Silt residents will be able to recycle much more.

As a Silt resident, Meriya Stickler is happy about the new change. “We will definitely recycle more with this container,” she said. “Recycling will be easier, and our garage and our neighborhood will be cleaner than before because the container is covered.”
