The mobile and web app, developed by Recycle Coach, provides residents with a full range of information that is normally on the website or in the collection schedule that City of Laredo Solid Waste distributes. Now, residents don’t have to go hunting for the printed schedule or be sitting in front of their computers. Instead, by downloading Recycle Coach™, City of Laredo residents can check details for regular and special collections. The app also allows you to set reminders and alerts for garbage, recycle and special collection schedules. Once you download Recycle Coach™ in iTunes and Google Play, you will need to input your city and address information to see details on collection schedule and options to set up reminders or alerts.

 

Regular updates on the mobile app will occur throughout the year to ensure the information is current.

Bag it or Maggots!

The City of Laredo wants to remind you to bag all your food waste and trash before throwing it inside the can.

Follow these simple tips to keep your Willie Bote in good condition.

  1. Bag all your trash especially food waste.
  2. Make sure to keep lid closed at all times.
  3. If extra space is needed in green can make sure you are recycling correctly since 60% of garbage is recyclable.

    Regularly wash your can with bleach or vinegar. Scrub the interior and exterior of the can with the vinegar.

  4. After scrubbing, rinse well, then allow can to dry in the sun before putting any new trash in. If your can is missing a lid or is broken please call 3-1-1 to have it fixed.

 

Items accepted in the recycling blue bin

Check the list before placing items into the bins.

 

The City of Laredo wants to thank you so much for your commitment to recycling correctly. We recently launched an advertising campaign to promote recycling and educate everyone on what goes into the Billie Blue recycling bin, such as paper, cardboard, metal cans, and plastic containers. In addition, this campaign explains what shouldn’t go into the recycling because it is garbage. Do not throw “tangler” items, such as hoses, ropes, or clothing, into the recycling bin. Do not recycle plastic wrap, plastic bags, bagged recyclables, hazardous materials, or “DIRTY” items, such as dirty diapers, food, or yard waste.
