Office paper will be added to the list of recyclable items when the city of Columbus takes over the duties formerly performed by Goodwill Industries.
A staff of six, including two city employees and four Muscogee County Prison inmates, will start sorting, processing and packaging recyclable materials on Wednesday at the new Material Recovery Facility at 25 22nd Ave. Office paper will be added to a list that already includes newspapers, magazines, No. 1 & 2 plastic, tin, aluminum cans, clear and colored glass, motor oil, transmission fluid and antifreeze.
All of the items will be picked up at the curb in the blue bin. Muscogee County residents who would like to drop off recyclable items may bring them to the recovery facility and drop them in designated bins.
Anyone with questions should call Ron Smith, deputy director of Public Services, at 706-653-4160.
