The Recycling Alliance of North Alabama (RANA), an opt-in monthly curbside recycling service, began phase four cart deliveries this week for residents who signed up for the program from Oct. 6, 2019, through Jan. 16. According to RANA, deliveries for this phase will last a few weeks since there was a high number of signups.

“We are thrilled that so many residents continue to sign up for the program and we are seeing huge successes in the first six months," says Doc Holladay, executive director of the Solid Waste Disposal Authority (SWDA). "In phase four, approximately 3,000 residents signed up, which shows positive momentum for our program and the direction we are headed.”

With approximately 69,000 households now in the program, RANA is looking at ways to help residents who have called in seeking additional carts.

“While we get requests from residents fairly often about the possibility of receiving ... additional carts, we want them to know that we are listening and working on a solution to share with residents soon,” says Holladay. 

RANA is funded by the SWDA of Huntsville, Alabama, and was launched in August 2019.
