The Longview Sanitation Division has developed some new and exciting changes to the Sanitation Collection system. Once fully implemented, nearly 70% of the waste from our homes can be recycled or composted, keeping it out of the landfill. There will be less litter in our neighborhoods from animals breaking into bags and spreading garbage for the wind to carry away. Also, the chances of employee injury will be greatly reduced. We are very thankful to our citizens, who have made Longview the model of responsible waste management in East Texas.
