Winchester Recycling Changes
3 January 2019 News
The City of Winchester’s recycling vendor is no longer accepting glass and some plastics. The City has has announced that it is currently researching and considering all other options to continue providing the service. Until a solution is found, glass and plastics number 3-7 will not be recycled. To reduce waste, the City’s Recycling Coordinator, Michael Neese, encourages residents to purchase products in plastics #1 or #2 or aluminum: “Remember to buy products with the end goal in mind.”In order to minimize impacts to residents and businesses, curbside recycling collection will continue operating as normal. Winchester residents and businesses can continue to place all recyclable materials in their recycle bin. However, any glass and plastics #3-7 that is collected curbside by Public Works will be sorted and transported to the landfill by the City’s current recycling vendor.
