Where are the trash cans?

St. Matthew’s sets up ‘collection stations’

“It is important that the parish is educated on the new process of garbage and recycling collection,” said the Vestry at its April meeting.

Here are the items that can currently be recycled at our central “collection stations” in the Narthex and across from Saints Hall:

  • Aluminum cans and foil

  • Cans (steel)
  • Cardboard
  • Cereal boxes
  • Envelopes
  • Folders
  • Frozen food boxes
  • Magazines and catalogues
  • Manuals with glued bindings
  • Newspapers and inserts
  • Paper (all types)
  • Plastic containers and lids
  • Posters
  • Receipts
  • Soft-covered books
  • Sticky notes
  • Stretch film (in bags)

These “collection stations” for trash and recycling have been set up in the Narthex and on the lower level across from Saints Hall. There are no trash cans in most other locations. The Narthex collection station is usually right near the coat closet, although sometimes the bins are rolled to a meeting room for a large meeting. (If you move the bins, please do return them to their “home bases”!)

Because the Louisville Metro government is trying to “dramatically increase recycling and reduce the amount of waste being dumped in landfills” (READ ABOUT THIS), many more items are being recycled today. Metro Louisville currently accepts all of the items listed above, and produced the illustrated poster shown here ( View/download ). This poster has also been taped onto the recycling bins at St. Matthew’s to make it easy to know what to throw in the recycling bin.

Non-recyclable materials can be thrown into the black bins for the landfill.
