KNOXVILLE (WATE) - A second round of recycling carts will be delivered in Knoxville throughout February for the city's new curbside single-stream program.

Households that signed up between Aug. 14 and Dec. 27, 2011, will receive their carts in this round. Pickup service starts on March 12.

Information is attached to the carts about what can be recycled, along with details about the RecycleBank Rewards program.

The additional 3,500 carts brings the total to 20,000 Knoxville households participating in the program.

Residents who aren't part of the 20,000 households can sign up online on a waiting list or call 311.

About 16,500 households have been using the bi-weekly service since the first of October and have already recycled more than 2,000 tons of materials.
