You are in 89129. That is twice a week pickup with recycling on some specific day every two weeks. I suggest you not worry much about it until you go to the once a week schedule somewhere in the next couple of years. Then you will have the two containers to separate.

In the interim if you wish you can recycle but just put whatever in the three boxes - they all go into the same place on the recycle truck. For the day ask Republic Services or simply watch the neighborhood. Each has a few people who do it.

By the way we are about neighbors. We back to Hickam on the other side of Durango.

There also seemed to be a requirement for separating glass and for placing cardboard in stacks outside the bins. Man, I hope it really is just throw it all in the bin!
We just moved to the Silverado Ranch area of Vegas and I wondered the same thing. I called and was reassured to just put everything together regardless of the color of the bin.

We just received a flyer in the mail telling us we will be getting the two 96 gal bins delivered to our area shortly. These little bins don't hold much!
