Tagged Bins
Posted On June 3, 2021

Several EVRC residents received red tags this morning indicating their black organic bins required replacement. If you received a tag before 10:30 am, you may have received this notice in error.

A black bin is permitted for organics collection if marked with an “Organics Only” sticker, and you have a second black bin being used for waste collection.

All bins for our collection program must also meet the following criteria

Approved bins will be:

  • Specifically designed for mechanical collections. Have a durable baffle catch, lid and bar to connect lid are separate components so the lid opens correctly when tipped upside down
  • Of a container made from strong rigid plastic that does not compress when in grabber arm
  • Comprised of components that BluPlanet can easily replace. There are three brands that provide a universal standard for door-to-door collection bins (IPL, Toter & Rehrig)

Thank you to our diligent community for the immediate feedback on the replacement tags. 

If you believe you received an incorrect notice on your bin for a reason not mentioned above, please send an email with a photo of your bin.
