City to expand recycling services

February 20, 2013 3:20:25 PM PST
More than 130,000 Chicago households will get recycling services over the next few months.

The recycling expansion is part of Mayor Emanuel's plan to bring recycling to all households in the city by the end of this year.

Blue Cart Recycling Services will start next month, and should be completed by this fall.

Private waste contractors will pick up the majority of the recycling, but some will also be picked up by city crews.
