This Wednesday is a red Wednesday, which means trash and recycling pickup. Please make sure you pick up containers after pickup tomorrow night. They do not belong on the sidewalk after tomorrow night (let’s keep the sidewalks clear for the Halloween Parade!).
In recycling news, The Eugene (Ore.) City Council voted 6-2 to approve a ban on single-use plastic bags at retail stores on Oct. 22. The ban will take effect in six months. Single-use paper bags are still allowed under the ordinance, but retailers are required to charge at least 5 cents each for those bags.
