Why is there no home pick-up recycling in the Southport/Oak Island area?

The towns of Southport and Oak Island both provide curbside recycling pickup from town-issued bins.

In Southport, Waste Industries picks up recycling bi-weekly on household garbage day, according to the town’s website.

Oak Island recently changed its recycling policy, issuing 90-gallon recycling carts to replace the 18-gallon bins. The recyclables pick-up day will remain the same, but Waste Industries will pick them up every other week rather than weekly, according to town Public Services Director Gene Kudges.

Oak Island’s new policy will take effect Feb. 1, 2011, and the cost for services will increase from $2.79 to $3.50 per month.

Waste Industries will only pick up refuse if it is in the proper container.

Areas outside the city limits do not have access to these services, but Brunswick County officials are talking with town leaders about how best to offer curbside recycling countywide.
