DKMM and the City of Mt. Vernon are announcing the opening of two residential recycling drop-off locations in the City of Mt. Vernon on July 15th. The recycling containers will be located at Memorial Park close to the tennis courts and at the Park and Ride intersection adjacent to Harcourt Road and State Route 229. The locations will be evaluated in four months to determine their permanency.
The goal of the new drop-off location is to give a recycling option for residents that don't meet the criteria to participate in the free curbside recycling program. A city ordinance requires all trash haulers who operate in the City of Mt. Vernon to offer curbside recycling at no additional cost to city residents living in housing with four units or less. Residents who have trash service are strongly encouraged to utilize the free curbside program offered through their trash company to avoid overflow at the drop-off locations.
