Maryville leaders are kicking off a partnership today to encourage recycling in the community.
The city of Maryville has donated recycling bins to the university which is already accepting paper goods for recycling. The program is to encourage residents to turn in clean paper, newspapers, magazins, office paper, and even cardboard boxes. Locations for drop-off will be given in a moment. Northwest Missouri state also has a glass crusher so glass bottles are also being sought. Maryville mayor Chad Jackson says the partnership was created after residents asked for the recycling service. Collection boxes for recyclable materials are on trailers which are now at Beal Park, Sisson-Eek park, behind city hall, and at the university's pellet plant on the west side of campus on country club road.
