HAILEY — Due to changes in international paper recycling markets, no vendors are currently accepting Blaine County’s used mixed paper for recycling.
The Blaine County Recycle Center has reached storage capacity for mixed paper. Now, all of that stored and all paper submitted for the foreseeable future will be disposed of as trash.
Blaine County is committed to supporting and sustaining the community’s excellent recycling habits. Accordingly, paper will continue to be collected, along with metal cans and plastics 1-5, through existing curbside pick-up where available throughout the county — as well as at Blaine County transfer stations.
The Blaine County Recycle Center and the Blaine County Board of Commissioners will continue looking for alternative solutions during the next three months and, if necessary, will re-evaluate available options by the end of this period.
For more information:
- Residents who live within a city should contact the appropriate city office.
- Residents contracting directly with a waste hauler for recycling pick-up may wish to contact their service provider.
- Residents who bring their own recyclables to the transfer stations may call Esmeralda Palomera at 208-788-5543 or email email@example.com.
