For those of you who continued recycling and hauled to the landfill recycling area, this is for you!

Effective September 11, 2020, Waste Management of Texas, Inc. ("WM") will no longer be able to accept Single-stream recyclable materials at the New Boston Landfill Drop-Off site. WM was informed in writing on Wednesday, September 9, 2020, that the processing center we take these Single-stream materials to is closing its doors to Single-stream recycling materials. Greif (dba Caraustar) can no longer accept materials because the Pratt Industries Material Recovery Facility in Shreveport, responsible for processing the recyclables, will no longer accept Single-stream materials. Unfortunately, there is no other available market for the materials at the current time.
WM apologizes for the short notice, but the conditions described above are beyond our control. WM values its recycling collections and is researching options to formulate a plan to resolve this matter.
Currently, the most impending issue is how recyclable materials will be handled in the immediate future since Caraustar will no longer accept Single-stream recycling material, effective close of business September 11. WM will accept only cardboard and paper for recycling at the New Boston Landfill Recycling Drop-Off site and no other materials will be accepted for recycling until viable markets are found for the Single-stream recycling materials.

*Edit- a citizen called with an email address. We have emailed and spoken with the company and informed them of needing a permit to go door to door.

**The company has stated they are out of the area but when they return, they know to get one next time!

***If anyone comes to your door without a permit, report it! You never know what they are up to! Shut the door and call!

If a man comes to your door trying to sell Direct TV, please call City Hall, he doesn’t have a permit to do so!

If it happens to be after hours, please dial 911. Let the dispatcher know it’s not an emergency but you need an officer to call you.
