“Skip” Decker with Hawaiian blue recycle bin.
Today the City of Roanoke held a press conference at Market Square to formally announce plans for Single Stream Recycling.
The 34,000 households and small businesses served by Roanoke City Waste Management may want to plan ahead on the extra space that will be needed to store a second “Hawaii blue” recyclable receptacle – “big blue” will have a mate.
The 96-gallon recycling container is the same size as “big blue.” Only residences that have existing alley collection for recycling will continue to use the small recycling bins.
Expect the new Hawaiian blue recycling container with a RFID tag installed to be delivered some

Today, OfficeMax announced plans to join with Office Depot to create a stronger, combined global company with a wide array of services and solutions that enable you, our valued MaxPerks customer, to work more efficiently and productively.
The combined company will build on the best of both organizations to give you even more product choices, advanced technology and printing services, and new innovations to help you work better in business and at home every day. By integrating our network of retail stores, direct sales, telesales and online environments, we’ll provide you multiple ways to connect with us.
Over the last six months, OfficeMax has added new technology support, cloud and website services. Recognizing the impact of economic and tax changes to the bottom line, we want to help make every dollar you spend work even harder by providing more everyday MaxPerks and weekly promotion value. We’ve expanded private brand products that offer strong performance at great value. Our commitment is to continue building this value as we serve you.
We expect the merger transaction to close by the end of calendar year 2013, subject to customary closing conditions. Until then, OfficeMax and Office Depot will remain separate companies, and each company will maintain its current rewards program.
