Four new recycling receptacles have been placed in downtown St. Charles to allow for residents and visitors to dispose of their trash properly and responsibly. The receptacles include three bins that have slots for plastic, glass and trash.
One bin is located at the Municipal Building Plaza near the Main St. Bridge; two are at the First Street parking garage by the Illinois St. entrance and Walnut St. cut through; and the last is at 3rd and Main streets.
“We were happy to provide these recycling bins in downtown St. Charles,” said Assistant Director of Public Works Chris Adesso. “These will help keep our city clean and keep unnecessary items out of landfills. It’s a win-win for everyone.”
The receptacles were an idea presented by the America in Bloom Committee as one way the City can be more environmentally responsible.
