Manteo is moving from curbside residential recycling collection, a free service for residents, to a paid subscription-based service starting Feb. 5.
Residents have until Jan. 31 to call Katie Beasley at Bay Disposal at 252-491-5105 ext. 351 to participate.
Weekly roll cart recycling service with Bay Disposal will cost $11.35 per month. Bay Disposal will bill residents each quarter.
Starting Feb. 5, Bay Disposal will begin to pick up roll carts at the homes of residents who choose not to participate in the subscription service. Roll carts need to be at the curb by this date, though Bay Disposal may need to extend pick-up activities into the following week.
Temporary recycling containers are in the side parking lot at town hall now through the end of June to help during this transition. Residents can also use the Dare County Recycling Center located at 1018 Driftwood Drive. The schedule is on the county website.
Contact James Ayers at 252-473-2133 for additional information.
