Many of Mississippi's communities are small — Jackson, the largest, has only 165,000 residents – and have faced their own recycling-related financial issues.
In response to a recent Waste Dive survey, Mississippi's Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) said that local MRFs were having more trouble selling materials due to low commodity values and high contamination rates.
This has led to "significant increases" in the costs of collection and sorting, which are made worse by the fact that it has always been hard to collect enough trash from the state's rural areas in an efficient way.
All papers, plastics, cardboards, and metals are recycled through a simple programme that tries to collect as much recycling material as possible in the offices and common areas so that people don't have to bring it to centralised collection points.
During a waste and recycling trial and study in 2010, it was found that more than 90% of the trash in offices was made of things that could be recycled. Because of this, old office containers were turned into recycling containers, and bigger recycling containers were put in common areas of buildings.
