The Town of Cary says it's switching to larger recycling containers and taking more types of materials.Beginning Tuesday, residents will start getting larger 65-gallon rolling bins. Collectors will also start accepting chipboard (such as cereal boxes and paper towel rolls), telephone books, mixed paper, and junk mail (including window envelopes and post cards).

Recycling will be collected on the same day as garbage and yard waste, but every other week at curbside. Garbage and yard waste will continue to be collected every week according to existing schedules.

Residents can keep the old smaller bins for other uses or recycle them by placing the bin in the new recycling cart. Old bins can also be recycled by taking them to the Citizens Convenience Center on Dixon Avenue.
