Columbus Company Cuts Recycling Program

Posted: Updated:
Columbus, MS - Mississippi Industrial Waste is ending its curbside recycling program.
    
The Commercial Dispatch reports that the company has notified customers the service will end Sept. 30.
    
Mississippi Industrial Waste is owned by Waste Pro USA Inc., a Florida-based company that operates through the southeastern United States and has more than 1.4 million customers.
    
Ron Pecora, chief marketing officer with Waste Pro USA, says the cycling program is no longer financially feasible because of low participation.
    
He says about 600 curbside recycling customers are scattered across Columbus.
    
The company says customers who have prepaid will receive a refund for unused months.
    
Mississippi Industrial Waste will maintain six locations in Lowndes County where the public can drop off recyclables.
