Recycling

Since May of 2004, the city of Gricignano has required local residents to recycle their trash.  Because the support site falls within their city limits, we are required to comply with their recycling program. Read on to improve your understanding of the program.

Bulky Items will be picked-up from your home during normal hours of operation.  To schedule a pick-up contact the Housing trouble desk to request this service (DSN) 629-4285/86 or commercial 081-811-4285/86. Items will usually be picked-up within 24 hours.

Waste Categories
Support site residents are required to separate their trash into categories which is picked up on a set schedule. Waste is separated into four different categories for pick-up:

  1. Compost - food items, plants and small pet waste
  2. Recyclables - paper, plastics and metals
  3. Non-recyclables - old clothes, dirty plastics, soiled papers, old toys, rags, sanitary napkins, diapers, etc.
  4. Cardboards - heavy duty cardboard boxes for mailing, packaging, etc.

Waste Collection Schedule
Styrofoam must be removed from boxes and other packing materials; placed in a plastic bag and discarded as non-recyclables. Flatten cardboard and stack neatly in the green pen.  Compost and non-recyclables may be taken out at your leisure and are only collected on the days below. Glass may be taken out at your leisure, however, ensure each bottle of glass is individually dropped in the glass container. Please do your part and ensure your glass does not become a hazard for someone else.
