PORTSMOUTH -- Portsmouth began replacing defective hinges on blue recycle cartsMonday.

Portsmouth began using the blue carts for curbside recycling in August.

Residents are asked to place their recycle carts out on their normal collection day until 8 p.m. to be serviced.

The new pins are blue and will replace defective black ones.

The process is expected to take four weeks.
