[ARCHIVED] Recycling Program Changes Necessitated
Why is Plastic Recycling Being Suspended?
The program change is necessitated by a lack of markets for plastic recyclable material. At this time, it is nearly impossible to identify a sustainable outlet with an acceptable tolerance for contamination typically associated with a municipal recycling program. A reliable demand for collected material is essential for the success of the city's recycling program.
When will Collection Resume?
There is no ability at this time to forecast when collection of plastic will continue.
Is Any Other Recyclable Affected?
While markets for glass have also declined significantly, the city will continue to accept glass at its drop-off center. In the near future, glass will be utilized as cover material at the Augusta Regional Landfill. This strategy will reduce reliance on natural cover material, dirt and soil of varying grades of quality.
