Curbside Recycling Change
Effective January 1, 2019, glass will no longer be accepted in its curbside recycling program.
It was discovered that during the collection and processing of the curbside recycling materials, most of the glass would be crushed during the baling process. Broken glass is a huge contamination concern and has a direct impact to Longview’s market prices. By removing glass from the curbside program, it will reduce contamination and provide for a better marketable material which will in turn, benefit the ratepayers of Longview.
Residents will be asked to either discard their glass bottles and jars into their green garbage containers or to bring them directly to Waste Control for recycling.
