Letters: Recycling
No Room at The Bins
May 14, 2014

A few years ago, the Town of Oriental allowed Pamlico County government to place recycling bins in the parking lot of Oriental’s recreational field on Straight Road. That was mainly done as a courtesy to residents outside of town – those who live in Oriental have their recyclables picked up at curbside a few times a month. A letter writer suggests the demand for a place to recycle is great.

To the Editor:

We are trying to be good new citizens and recycle. Every time we haul our recyclables to the facility by the fire department, all the dumpsters are jammed to capacity. Is there a way to have more frequent pick ups now that summer is here? We will not leave our stuff on the ground so we end up bringing it back each time.
