There are three Silver Bullet Recycling containers located at 103 Smithwheel Rd here in OOB (across from the Public Works Office) for all of your recycling needs.  Two Bullets are for mixed recyclables and one (on the far right side) is for cardboard only.  The Silver Bullet that was at the Radley's Plaza was removed mid-July due to illegal dumping.
