NATCHEZ, Miss. (AP) - Curbside recycling will end in Adams County effective April 1, but county supervisors hope to offer residents recycling bins at two convenience stations as an alternative.

The Natchez Democrat reports (https://bit.ly/2l97wbn ) County Administrator Joe Murray said the county is paying more than $10,000 a year for the program, and only about 100 residences are regularly participating.

Supervisors had previously planned to discontinue recycling at the end of February, but Murray said he didn’t think that would give residents enough time to adjust.

Waste Pro, the company currently contracted to pick up garbage and recycling, says recycling bins should be in place by March 1at the convenience stations for residents who still want to participate in the program. Murray says those will be at no cost to the county.
