Houston resumes curbside recycling of glass for the first time in three years with the opening of a new MRF operated by FCC. Franklin expects to reduce contamination by a potential switch to cart-based collection, green bay packers and mickey mouse crocs versus a current bag system, but will likely also cut mixed plastics from its accepted list at that time. Pricing has gotten tight in Williamson County overall, but programs are working through it. The state’s Commerce Department announces a new ad campaign to reiterate the economic benefits of recycling, with a particular focus on plastic bottles. RIRRC relaunches its “Let’s Recycle RIght” public education campaign, with support from Gov. Gina Raimondo. The agency plans ads across a wide range of mediums, including trilingual mailers targeted at six communities with the highest contamination rates.
In June 2019, the state’s Department of Environmental Protection told Waste Dive it had been working to convene meetings between private and public sector operators and emphasizing open communication. Dual-stream or source-separated programs have experienced fewer challenges, but all areas of the states have felt financial effects. A wave of attempted contract renegotiations for single-stream programs has been particularly striking, with glass getting cut in many cases. Residents in many municipalities are struggling to understand the new rules, or why they have to change recycling habits. According to the agency’s latest figures, (Aug. 29, 2019) there have been 26 disposal concurrences granted since Sept. 2017. This totaled 16,394 tons between Sept. 1, 2017 and July 31, 2019 – about 0.4% of statewide recycling activity during that time. Toledo officials are moving forward with plans to build a hybrid MRF, which they hope will have local economic benefits.
