FAYETTEVILLE -- Just in time for Earth Day. The city's Recycling and Trash Collection Division installed nine recycling containers on the downtown square Monday.
A waste audit by the Fayetteville Recycling and Trash Collection Division determined that plastic bottles and aluminum cans were the recyclable materials that were being thrown away the most in trash receptacles on the downtown square.
