New trash, recycling bins downtown

City officials introduced new recycling and garbage bins for downtown Fort Wayne on Thursday.

The eight new recycling receptacles were bought by the Downtown Improvement District. An additional 16 litter receptacles were refurbished by metal-finishing students at Anthis Career Center and then repainted by the city’s division of traffic operations.

Both the recycling and litter units will be collected weekly by Republic Services in 2012 through a contract with the city.
