Plastic bags are one of the most common items of solid waste disposed of in the landfills.
In an effort to reduce the costs by reducing the number of plastic bags disposed of in the landfill, the City Of Eden Solid Waste Division and Eden's Wal-Mart will be teaming up to start a Plastic Bag Recycling Program.
With the help of Calvin Martin; Co-Manager of the Wal-Mart Store in Eden, the Solid Waste Division will be placing receptacles marked, (Plastic Bags Only) at the main Recycling Center located on Mebane Bridge Road and all the Recycling Drop Ports located through-out the city.
The Solid Waste Division will collect these receptacles on Wednesdays and transport them to Wal-Mart for bailing with Wal-Mart's recyclable plastics and shipment to Wal-Mart's Recycling Vendor.
Your efforts are needed to reduce the cost of solid waste disposal in the landfill and through this and other recycling programs, we can achieve that goal.
