Mayor Lioneld Jordan and the City of Fayetteville Solid Waste and Recycling Division is excited to announce the groundbreaking for the new Marion Orton Recycling Drop-Off Facility located at 729 W. North Street in Fayetteville.  The Groundbreaking ceremony will be held at 9:30 a.m. on Wednesday, October 24th, at the location of the site (729 W. North Street).

The new recycling facility will allow the City to expand the goal of supplying more convenient recycling options for residents and businesses and send materials to recycling markets for beneficial use while diverting materials away from the landfill.  The new site will have recycling containers for all the materials currently collected in the residential curbside program including: cardboard, paper board (cereal boxes, shoe boxes, etc.), mixed paper, newspaper, plastic #1 bottles, plastic #2 bottles, steel cans, aluminum cans and all colors of glass bottles and jars.

The new location is centrally-located and close to many apartment complexes and will provide a convenient opportunity for apartment residents and also commercial businesses to recycle materials from their homes and offices.
