Covington makes new recycling deal
COVINGTON, Va. (WDBJ) - The city of Covington is moving to a new recycling deal.
Covington announced Recycling and Disposal Solutions will now be managing the city’s recycling program. It had been handled by a local non-profit.
There will be a recycling container at Casey Field that RDS will collect bi-weekly.
“While we are switching service providers and that may affect some folks that have been previously employed by the non-profit, we are actually working with out community services board, our Virginia Career Works, and with others in the community to ensure that we have a safety net and are aligning resources for those folks,” City Manager Krystal Onaitis said.
Covington has never had curbside recycling pickup.
