In 2006, the City’s recycling program reached an all-time high with a contamination rate of 44.8%. This means that close to half of all the material collected in the brown recycling containers was garbage or other similar contaminants. This high level of contamination is simply unacceptable. In an effort to reduce recycling contamination, the Longview City Council approved a recommendation to implement the current recycling inspection program.
