Recycling begins in Hillcrest and Deaverview on October 3rd!

Thanks to the success of the curbside recycling program in the Southside communities, which began in October 2015, more Asheville Housing Authority’s (AHA) residents will have access to the program next week. AHA, AHA’s Residents’ Council, City of Asheville, and Asheville GreenWorks are expanding recycling to the Hillcrest and Deaverview communities in October.

Due to a grant from the North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality and funding from the City of Asheville, each unit of Hillcrest and Deaverview will receive its own 96 gallon “big blue” recycling roll cart, as well as a smaller, in-apartment recycling bin to make it easier to collect recyclable materials in the kitchen.

“We are aiming for high participation rates,” says Kerby Smithson of the City’s sustainability office. “We need residents that are enthusiastic about the program to talk to their neighbors and lead by example. That way we can all do our part to minimize the trash that we send to the landfill and create a more sustainable community.”

Recycling is “single stream,” meaning that recyclable plastic, paper, metal and glass materials can all be put in one container, and there’s no need to sort. Collection will be every other week, beginning on Monday, October 3rd.

“We are excited about this collaboration, and more importantly we are proud to be able to help expand this service to our residents. As an agency, we are committed to looking for ways to be more sustainable in our practices and processes,” says Gene Bell, Chief Operating Officer of AHA.
