Jackson Trashing Recycling Programs

JACKSON, MS (Ben Caxton) — Mississippi’s capital will join over 300 cities nationwide that have stopped curbside recycling collections. The program will be suspended at the end of August in part because China’s demand for recycled materials has fallen. The city has spent over $1.1 million a year for curbside pickup but less than a third of Jackson residents participate. The city will refer residents to private collectors and will consider restarting curbside recycling when the marketplace “reorganizes itself.”
