How does the Blue Box Recycling work? When is my blue box day?

Blue Boxes can be purchased for $8 from the Public Works Office at the corner of Fifth Street and Wright Avenue between the hours of 8 a.m. and 4 p.m.
See Recycling Instructions
Collection for recycling products will be bi-weekly only. Recyclables will be picked up on the same day of the week as garbage pickup.

The calendar will show you on which week you can put out your blue box, organic waste, and black box. The black box is what's new in the waste collection system. If you don't have one yet, soon you will be receiving a new box, just like the familiar blue box—except that it's black.

No encontré \"blue box day\" con referencia a Bélgica/Belgium, pero parece ser parte del programa de reciclaje, no sólo en los EE. UU., sino también en Canadá y el Reino Unido, como puedes ver en los links.
