More N.C. Communities Scale Back Recycling Programs

(NORTH CAROLINA NEWS NETWORK) — Environmental advocates warn that North Carolina is moving backward when it comes to recycling.

According to a new report, in 2017 the state landfilled more than nine million tons of waste.

Jean-Luc Duvall of Environment North Carolina, the organization who authored the findings, says cities and towns across the state have scaled back the list of recyclable materials they will accept, including glass and some plastics.

Duvall adds that this holiday season, the more North Carolinians are able to reduce and reuse their waste before turning to recycling, the better for the environment.

Goldsboro is among the North Carolina communities that do not recycle glass or certain plastics.

    I’m all for more recycling, but as of last year the city of Goldsboro recycles less. Here’s a youtube video of what they take: Named “City of Goldsboro – Recycling Update” as of Jun 27, 2018.
