|Single stream recycling 2020|
In January 2020, all residents in unincorporated Sarasota County will transition from a manual dual-stream, bin-based collection system to an automated, single-stream, cart-based system.
The standard single-family home will receive a 65-gallon capacity cart on wheels. The cart measures 40.5' (h) x 26.7' (w) x 28.11' (d). Multifamily or common-area residences will have access to single-stream recycling carts. Trucks will use a robotic arm to lift and empty the recycling carts.
Single-stream recycling collection will begin the week of Jan. 6, 2020. Recycling materials will not be collected in red and blue recycling bins after Jan. 3, 2020.
Until single-stream recycling begins, store carts behind or beside your home, inside your garage, etc. Do not store them on the sidewalk in front of your home. Follow any storage rules that might be required by your homeowner's association.
When recycling collections starts, keep the cart at least three feet away from other objects such as mailboxes, utility poles and cars so the automated arm on the recycling truck can easily access the cart for service. Position the cart so that the opening of the lid is facing the street.12/7/19 Big Recycle Blue Bins have been delivered to Manasota Key.
Be sure to get yours moved off the street.
President's Letter to Our Members
Posted on Mar 29th, 2019
Your Manasota Key Association has been busy continuing the organization’s fine tradition of protecting and preserving our beloved stretch of the island. The board continues to meet monthly during season and as needed the rest of the year to keep operations efficient and tend issues that impact our quality of life. Those of you who took the time to complete our survey in January validated that our efforts are focused on the things you also think are important. Our organization continues to strive to represent the best interests of our 230+ household members. For those who could not attend the meeting, an updated recap of our efforts can be found on the MKA website. I want to thank our Board of Directors for all their efforts to keep the Association a strong, effective organization. I’d also like to remind you that we like to have fun. Hope to see you at the Picnic on April 6th!
