The recycling service from the City of Roswell’s Solid Waste Department will come to a close in February (this is an extension from previous timetable) as the city turns over local recycling services to a private company. A franchise agreement between the city and J&A Recycling received final approval from the City Council Dec. 10 and will formally go into effect Jan. 9, 2021.
The city recycling collection containers located at various sites throughout the city will remain in use until at least sometime in February as the transition is made. Citizens can continue to use the containers until then to deposit cardboard and cans (tin and aluminum). Other types of recyclables are no longer accepted.
The variety of acceptable recyclables will again expand as Roswell-based J&A Recycling takes over. Residents will deal directly with J&A to set up collection service featuring collection from their homes or businesses. People who have been customers of J&A in the past should note that the company is under new management, so past customers will have to sign up anew if they would like the service.
To learn the details of the services offered by J&A, the company’s rates for service, and other information about the company and its recycling services, visit nmrecycles.com, email email@example.com or call (575) 265-8331.
