Fayetteville Seeks Input On Future Recycling Efforts

Fayetteville officials are asking for input on the future of the city’s recycling and trash management efforts.

A public meeting is planned for 6 p.m. Monday, April 6 at Woodland Junior High School to discuss a citywide recycling master plan intended to increase recycling and divert more trash from landfills.

“We are excited about seeing a large crowd at this meeting,” said Jeff Coles, the city’s director of recycling and trash collection. “We will discuss how the master plan process will occur over the upcoming months and how everyone can participate.”

City Council members in September approved the hiring of Kessler Consulting, a Florida-based waste management firm, to develop the plan, which will identify steps Fayetteville should take to reach the city’s goal of increasing its trash diversion rate from 18 percent to 80 percent over the next 10 years.
