Changes are coming to Craven County’s recycling program. Starting August 26, 47,000 Craven County residents will begin receiving 95 gallon lime green and black rolling recycling carts. The monthly curbside recycling collection will begin October 7th. According to a news release, areas within the county will be assigned a zone color and a pickup day of the week that will be stamped on top of the recycling cart. The new curbside recycling program affects all Craven County municipalities except for Bridgeton which manages its own pickup. After October 4th, recycling placed in the current 18-gallon recycling bins won’t be collected. Residents are encouraged to repurpose the containers.
