New and Ongoing: Richland County Solid Waste and Recycling announced changes to curbside recycling service for some Richland County residents. As of February 11, 19,000 residents in the north-central and southeastern parts of unincorporated Richland County have received 95-gallon, lime green roll carts for recyclable materials such as newspapers, plastic, cans, and glass. These new recycling carts will replace the smaller red recycling bins, and acceptable items will now be accepted every other week. The cost of service will not change. By 2015, all of the county’s 88,000 curbside customers will convert from 18-gallon recycling bins to full sized recycling roll carts. For more information call the Richland County Ombudsmans Office at 803-929-6000.
