Why does the blue recycling can I received not have wheels? The one in the picture has wheels.
A: The ones with the wheels in the picture on the material provided with the can are the 96 gallon recycling carts used exclusively for curbside pickup. The City chose to maintain the up the drive service which requires using a 32 gallon can so it can be manually lifted by the worker to empty into the truck. The smaller cans do not have wheels and can not be retrofit to get them. Recycling pick up will still be performed weekly so it should not be as heavy as a full trash can since recyclables are generally lighter than trash. With the up the drive service, the recycling can does not have to be taken very far outside the garage either as opposed to the curbside collection which requires both garbage and recycling to be taken to the curb each week..
