Major Recycling Changes Coming To Amherst
If you recycle and live in Amherst, expect to see some major changes coming to what you can recycle.
The Town of Amherst announced that some items are getting too expensive for them and their partner Modern Disposal to recycle.
This biggest issue is with colored glass. That means many of your wine and beer bottles will go straight into the trash, not the recycling bin.
The cost of recycling those materials has gone up after several countries started to limit what recyclable materials can be imported.
While the cost of recycling hasn't gone up yet, officials say places are offering less money for those recycling materials which means the cost to recycle will go up.
