- Jenks, landfill, one cart recycling, sorting
Jenks city residents are now able to place their loose recyclables into city trash carts along with their normal bags of trash. American Waste Control collects the trash and sorts the cart’s contents at Mr. Murph.
Our ultimate goal was to make recycling as simple as possible to encourage a higher recycling rate for Jenks, plus, increase sustainability.
With this new program, Jenks residents can recycle their trash at no additional cost and with the convenience of curbside pickup. After the trash is collected, it is converted into energy at our landfill and the recyclables go to the recycling facility still mixed, where an advanced recyclables sorting machine (Mr. Murph) separates the different materials.
