New Recycling Bins Getting Filled
LaFondra Johnson, a code enforcement officer, unloads a bag of cans she and her coworkers have been collecting in anticipation of the arrival of the city’s first recycling bins. Located at the end of the dead-end street just southwest of Walmart, the green bins have areas for aluminum and steel cans, plastic bottles with the No. 1 on them, mixed paper and cardboard. Mayor Bill Luckett, Fire Chief Obert Douglas and the city’s new recycling manager, Marc Taylor, were all on hand Tuesday as soon as the bins arrived, and several people showed up with bags full of recyclable materials they had already gathered in anticipation of the new bins. Clarksdale Public Utilities will be sending out flyers with next month’s bills telling customers what kinds of items can be recycled.
