19 Downtown Businesses Participating in City of Mobile's Curbside Recycling Pilot Program


October 10, 2017

Mobile, Ala. -- Nineteen downtown businesses are now participating in the City of Mobile's Curbside Recycling Program including Mobile Downtown Alliance, Urban Emporium, Odaly's Irish Pub, Serda's Coffee, Metlife, Five, Chuck's Fish, Wintzell's Oyster House, Delta Bike Project, Merry Widow, Pro Legal Copies, Mobile Arts Council, Buck's Pizza, Haberdaser, Kazoola Eatery & Entertainment, Moe's Original Bar B Que, The Steeple, Dauphin Street Blues Company and Draft Picks Tap Room.

"I am thankful for these businesses' leadership as we create a cleaner, greener community," said Mayor Stimpson. "Their support will help us reach our goal to exponentially increase the rate of recycling in Mobile. When recycling is more convenient and less confusing, more people recycle and people who recycle are less tolerant of litter."

The City launched its new recycling program for LODA businesses this week. All participating businesses receive a blue recycling cart at no cost during the pilot program. City crews will transport the recycled material every day to a transfer station where it will be collected with other recycling material and moved to the recycling facility.

Last April, the City transitioned to single stream recycling opening two new recycling locations near the Mobile Museum of Art in the parking lot of the City's Western Administrative Complex and behind Police Headquarters off Pinehill Drive. The hours of operation are from 7 am to 6 pm, Monday through Friday, and 7 am to 4 pm, Saturday through Sunday.

All recyclable material can be placed in one container at each location and sorting of recyclable material will no longer be required. Accepted Recyclable Material include Glass, Newspaper & Inserts, Cardboard, Magazines & Catalogs, Junk Mail & Envelopes, Paper Bags & Phone Books, Colored Papers, Aluminum Cans & Lids, Tin/Steel Cans & Lids, Metal Pots & Pans, Pet Food Cans, Plastic Produce Clamshells, Plastic Milk Jugs, Cereal Boxes, Foil Baking Pans, Cardboard Egg cartons, Dry Pet Food Bags, Pizza Boxes, Tin Foil, Plastic Bottles and Plastics No. 1-7.
