Due to a COVID outbreak at the County Jail, the Coos County Recycling Center (which Columbia belongs to) will not be able to handle any sort of recyclable materials (cardboard, plastic, glass, etc.).  We are asking that residents hold on to their recyclables and NOT add them to your regular household waste.  We are requesting this because putting them with your regular trash increases the tonnage and ends up costing the Town more money plus losing the revenue that we get from selling the recyclables.   PLEASE HOLD ON TO YOUR RECYCLABLES UNTIL FEBRUARY 10TH.  AT THAT TIME, YOU WILL BE ABLE TO DISPOSE OF THEM AS NORMAL.
