Americus working to enhance recycling program

SUMTER CO., GA (WALB) -

Americus City officials are working to enhance the city's recycling program.

Right now, they have five bins set up along highway 30 near Dollar General for people to dispose of plastic bottles, magazines, and other recyclable material.    

They're trying to build a bigger program,  but a 25-year contract with Trans Waste limits where recyclables in Sumter County can be processed.

"Its very important to have that mindset in a community and clean up the community and we don't want that discouraged even though it may take some time to set up this new program we don't want to stop that enthusiasm we want them to continue to want to recycle," says Chief Administrative Officer. Laura Lee Bernstein.

She hopes to have the program set up by the end of the year.
