Chicago begins new push for blue cart recycling
Mayor Rahm Emanuel's office announced Wednesday that more than 131,000 Chicago households will get blue cart recycling services in March and April.
"The blue cart recycling program will provide bi-weekly recycling collection services to residents who live in single family homes, two-, three- and four-flat buildings," a statement said.
The expansion will include 340,000 households and is scheduled to be complete by the fall of 2013. Currently, city officials say 260,000 households receive blue cart recycling service.
