NATCHEZ, Miss. (AP) - The expansion of curbside recycling into Adams County outside of Natchez will begin this week.

Green Alliance Chairman Jim Smith tells The Natchez Democrat (https://bit.ly/ON1Frv ) Waste Pro will be passing out blue recycling bins to 500 homes in the county Wednesday.

The bins will be distributed south of Natchez in the Beau Pré, Meadows, South Fork and Waverly Place areas, and north of town in the Morgantown area. Pickup of recyclables will begin April 2 and continue each Wednesday.

Smith says the county government is looking to add another 500 houses to the recycling program in six months if it is successful, but approximately 4,000 homes in Adams County are too remote to make curbside recycling economically feasible.
