Solid Waste & Recycling Program
In the Spotlight
Did You Know?
Effective January 1, 2019, glass will no longer be collected in your curbside recycling program. The decision to remove glass from the program was due in large part to finding that most glass would break during the collection and baling process. The markets in which we sell our material to is classifying the broken glass as contamination and ultimately is affecting the market prices which the ratepayers of Longview has benefited from in the past.
For those that want to continue to recycle glass, you can bring them to Waste Control Recycling directly, or you may place in your green garbage container.
How to Report a Concern or a Complaint
All concerns/complaints to the city must be done so in written or electronic form. In order to ensure that every concern is appropriately addressed and to protect complainants from possible reprisal, every complainant must provide a written or electronic statement regarding the nature of their complaint.
Complainants must provide their contact information, but can indicate that they wish to remain anonymous/confidential. (If a case were to make its way to court, it is possible that a judge could require a complainant to be named if their testimony is pertinent to the case)
