Belleville’s Green Bin Organics Recycling Program
The City of Belleville's Green Bin Organic Waste Recycling Program begins the week of August 5, 2013 with the regularly scheduled garbage pickup. The Green Bin Organic Waste Recycling Program is designed to help our environment by reducing the amount of waste that reaches our landfills. As much as 40% of garbage is compostable (ie. food waste) and should be composted.
