ST. CHARLES – All St. Charles residents will receive a 65-gallon container for their recyclable materials as part of a new residential recycling program offered by the city and Advanced Disposal, according to a city news release.

Carts of other sizes – 35-gallon and 95-gallon carts – also are available at no additional cost.
