Recycling discussed in Solid Waste meeting Friday
"... The local recycling center can not accept (no place for it to go) plastic grocery bags, plastic container wrapping, number 5 or number 7 plastics, or slick paper advertisements...
By Rebecca Montgomery
The Adair County Fiscal Court Solid Waste Committee held a brief meeting Friday morning, June 12, 2020, live-streamed on the Adair County Fiscal Court Facebook page. The meeting discussed the reopening of the recycling center three days a week as well as the recent hire of a new employee to help.
The committee touched upon UNacceptable items people often bring to the recycling center, which include plastic bags, plastic container wrapping, and number 5 and number 7 plastics. Solid Waste Coordinator Bridget Compton noted that Keurig cups are made from number 5 plastic and are not acceptable, since the recycling center does not have a buyer for that type.
The plastic number can be determined by looking inside the triangular recyclable symbol usually printed at the bottom of recyclable plastic products. The recycling center also gets charged if there are any slick paper advertisement pages in the newspapers they send to their buyer, so residents should try to remove those pages before bringing newspapers to be recycled.
Compton said she is working to make a poster of acceptable and unacceptable items so that residents will know exactly what they can and cannot take to the recycling center.
The meeting also discussed the county's popular free tipping event, which will not be able to take place until the governor lifts restrictions on larger gatherings and the center regains their work release employees.
