Mayor Rahm Emanuel announced today that Chicago’s blue cart recycling will go citywide by the end of the week.

The final batch of recycling bins will be delivered to the last neighborhoods that don’t already have them.

When the deliveries are complete, more than 600,000 Chicago households will use the blue carts to recycle their trash.

“With the final phase of the blue cart recycling expansion, Chicago is no longer the tale of two cities when it comes to recycling,” said Mayor Rahm Emanuel.  “Recycling is now a reality for every neighborhood in every community, and we have made Chicago a greener, more environmentally friendly city.”

The blue cart recycling program provides bi-weekly recycling collection services to residents who live in single family homes, two-, three- and four-flat buildings.
