Some QC apartments are taking recycling to a whole new level.
Spencer Towers in Rock Island is just one of several apartments that's offering a unique style of curbside pickup.
Residents can drop their recycling just outside their apartment door and volunteers will bring it down to the recycling dumpster.
The Rock Island Housing Authority says they're already seeing residents embrace the new idea.
"This is the first time I've ever seen this," said Johnnie Light, Recycling Coordinator. "It means that we won't have so much stuff going to the landfill, the garbage fill."
Since June, the six apartment complexes participating have recycled more than 35,000 pounds.
