COLUMBUS COUNTY, NC (WECT) – New recycling carts are being delivered to residents in Whiteville this week.
These bins will allow for recycling pickup in the city for the first time in nearly eight years.
According to Mayor Terry Mann, Waste Management will pick up the recyclable items twice a month and residents will pay an extra $3 a month for the service.
Mann said the program didn’t go well when they tried it several years ago because the bins weren’t big enough. He said newspapers would overflow and litter the neighborhoods.
The recycling service will start in Whiteville next month.
