QVNA first 50 bins will arrive the last week of October 2017. We will begin the tracking and form process at that time. Bins are tracked by the city, and all bin partners are required to complete a bin registration request form, submit, and retain a hard copy of the bin request.
Resident users also have the option to go online-http://www.philadelphiastreets.com/binrequest
. If a resident takes this route to request a bin, after they have completed online application, they will be given an electronic confirmation page that they must bring to QVNA office or the bin providers listed at the bottom of the online application.
Residents can receive (1) bin per household, and (2) bins per year. Residents must provide proof of residency to receive a bin from any Bin Partner.
You can use any sturdy plastic or metal container that holds 32 gallons or less and just mark it with the word “RECYCLING” on its side. It does not have to be blue.
Do not use cardboard boxes or bags as containers; they’ll end up wet, split open and make a mess on your sidewalk. Instead, flatten them and place them in your bin to be recycled with your bottles, cans and paper.
If one bin is not enough to hold all recyclables, simply add another one.
Bin availability in QVNA office is first come first served (during business hours), until all bins are gone. Bin pick up will be announced on website.
