Compiled by The Bedford Citizen

A slow-moving truck and trailer are creeping along local streets this week, delivering Bedford’s new recycling carts to each residence.

The bins are stacked in the trailer without axles or wheels; each is pulled out and the rolling gear is affixed. When it is dropped off the trailer, another worker armed with a hand-held computer reads the cart’s barcode and assigns it to the proper address.

Automated recycling collection begins on Monday, July 1.
