It's Recycle Time

by Jessica Cervantez

It comes once a year. It's the trash bag giveaway in the City of Lufkin. It is another way to make recycling easier.

This year, be ready for a couple of garbage bag changes. One box you get will contain the normal garbage bags. The other box will contain green "yard waste" bags instead of the transparent blue bags formerly used for recycling. The green bags will be used for yard debris including leaves and twigs, and will be picked up once a week.

The blue recycling bags will no longer be available. Recycling items can now be placed directly inside of the blue curbside containers.
