Thomasville, Georgia’s recycling center reopens Monday. The facility shut down for a few days to make changes to how it accepts paper and plastic.

When recycling trucks drive their routes through Tallahassee, they only collect recyclables from about every third house. That’s according to city recycling coordinator Paul Hurst.

“The percentage of participants is much lower than we’d like to see it,” he said.

He said the city is hoping to attract more recyclers by making the process easier. So it’s put out a request for bids to get a new kind of processor that could handle all types of recyclables at once.
