No daily newspaper and more cardboard lead to changes at Fayetteville’s recycling drop-off sites

With less newspaper in the recycling stream and more cardboard being used, Fayetteville officials have made some changes to the recycling drop-off sites.

The regional newspaper earlier this year stopped printing a daily paper, and at about the same time, the volume of cardboard being used increased as more residents began ordering products online for home delivery.

As a result, the city has removed its separate newspaper containers and added more space for cardboard at both its recycling drop-off facilities.

Newspaper recycling is still available in the drop-off mixed paper containers, and for all curbside pickup customers.

The city’s 24-hour recycling drop-off sites are located at 1420 S. Happy Hollow Road and 735 W. North Street.
