Recycling pickup days to change

Press release from the city's public works department:

The City’s Joint Board approved the first phase of full implementation of single-stream recycling for the remainder of the City over the next three budget years. The City of Bristol recentlyreceived a grant that will fund single-stream recycling for 760 additional Bristol homes beginning in early fall 2010. In addition, the City plans to convert another 3,850 homes to single stream recycling over late fall 2010 and spring 2011 as we receive the automated trucks needed for collection. The remainder of the City will follow over the next two budget years.
The implementation of single stream recycling creates the need to shift residents recycling day so that both solid waste (rubbish) and recycling barrels are not out at the curb on the same day. Several areas of the City do not have enough curbside frontage for both rubbish and recycle barrels on the same day. Consequently, the City of Bristol Board of Public Works has revised the solid waste and recycling collection schedule for all residential homes within the City to shift the normal collection of recyclable materials to the next working daybeginning Monday August 2, 2010. (i.e. Monday rubbish collection will have Tuesday recycling collection during your regularly scheduled recycle week).
If you have questions, please contact Public Works at 860-584-6125 or 860-584-7791.

What a stupid idea. Now almost every day the curbs will have trash receptacles on them.
