- Due to the increased fee with the contractor that Moore County uses for recyclables, the Town would experience a rate increase from $25 to $100 per ton for recyclables to be picked up beginning December 1, 2018. After some discussion, the Board members agreed to educate residents about removing glass from recyclables to be picked up by the Town to decrease the tonnage cost, and residents can instead take the glass to be recycled to the Moore County Landfill on Highway 5. Glass will no longer be picked up by the Town in recyclables effective January 1, 2018.
