FLORENCE – Supervisor Pete Rios and the Pinal County Public Works Department are reminding residents to break down their cardboard boxes when they take them to a county recycling bin.
“Constituents in Kearny recently reported seeing a number of large cardboard boxes discarded around the recycling bins and in the surrounding area,” Supervisor Rios said. “It’s unsightly and unacceptable. Please flatten your cardboard boxes and place them inside the bin. This allows more recycling material to fit in there.”
Rios said that the bins are placed there as a courtesy to local residents to encourage them to recycle instead of dumping them in landfills.
“The last thing we want to see is for our recycling bins to become an eyesore. We don’t want continuing complaints from residents and merchants, to force removal of the bins,” he added.
