Recycling facility could be fully operational next month
Published: August 11,2013
JACKSON — A recycling center is again accepting paper after being shut down, and could fully reopen as soon as next month.
Recent closures of two facilities had left Jackson residents without a place to drop off recyclables in the city.
Jackson offers curbside recycling to houses but relies on businesses to provide drop-off locations for others, including apartment residents and businesses.
ECO Serve Recyclers is assisting with the cleanup, The Clarion-Ledger reports. Company official Roger Thomas says the facility hopes to reopen by mid-September. Until then, residents can drop off paper and cardboard, but not plastic, aluminum or glass.
Material piled because the former operator couldn’t keep up with the volume brought in by the city’s curbside program. Thomas said crews have recycled 85 percent or more of material.
