New Recycling Program Collects 11 Tons During First Week
It has been a full week since Jonesboro launched their new blue recycling carts. Last week they collected 11.1 tons of recyclables.
This was from roughly 6 thousand users, as opposed to the 8 thousand people who used the old blue bags.
Since it was a holiday week the pick-up schedule was a little off and some late orders still needed to receive their carts.
Interim COO, Roy Ockert, says it was a good first week but he's not sure if the 11 tons will be the average.
If you still have not received a bin, they will be on sale for 20 dollars for another week.
