Glass not recyclable through the Town recycling program beginning January 7, 2019
Posted on Thursday January 03, 2019
Major change beginning January 7, 2019 - Glass not recyclable through the Town recycling program.

The contractor that Moore County uses for recycling has increased their fee from $25 to $100 per ton. Since the Town takes all recyclables to Moore County for proper disposal, we will incur this increase. After notification of this increase, Board members have agreed to remove glass from recyclables to decrease the tonnage cost.

With this change, glass will no longer be accepted as a recyclable item through the Town recycling program effective January 7, 2019. Citizens can still take glass recyclables to the Moore County Landfill located at 456 Turning Leaf Way (off Hwy 5). The landfill will have a container designated for glass only.

Recycle containers will be checked as they are picked up for glass. If there is glass in the recycle container, a Sanitation worker will tag the can to remind the resident that glass is not recyclable.

If you have any questions about the route change or recycle change, contact Robert Baker, Sanitation Superintendent, at 910-944-7012 or [email protected]
