Automating Collection of Recycling Materials

Automating Collection of Recycling Materials
Posted on 06/21/2012

You may see a new sticker on your recycling bin soon. Waste Management is progressing forward with automating the collection of recycling materials in the Village of Orland Park. The new sticker will indicate an order and spacing for the collection. Your help is needed.

Collection vehicles equipped with mechanical arms will be used to empty the recycling bins. Your cooperation is needed in order to achieve an efficient collection.

Please place your recycling bin along the street with the lid opening toward the street. Provide approximately 3 feet of space between the recycling bin and other objects such as a regular waste container or yard waste recycling container. This will provide enough room for the automated arms to engage the recycling bin and properly unload the recyclable materials from the bin.
