Commerce residents have two locations where they can recycle some of their household wastes, and they’re abusing both, say the people in charge.
Susan Trepagnier, director of Keep Jackson County Beautiful, which has four paper recycling bins across the parking lot from Lanier Technical College on South Elm Street, says the bins are being overrun with cardboard.
And Commerce city manager Clarence Bryant advised at a city council planning session Friday afternoon that the city’s recycling bin at the Public Works facility on Waterworks Road is “in danger of not being there” because “25-30 percent” of what is dumped in the bin is material inappropriate for the site.
The Keep Jackson County Beautiful recycling bins on South Elm Street overflowed with cardboard this week. They're meant to receive newsprint, magazines and office paper for recycling.
