Harnett County Solid Waste will officially open the new Johnsonville Convenience Site Monday, February 27. The new site, located at 721 Ponderosa Road, Cameron, will replace the current site on Brooks Mangum Road, which will close permanently on February 25.
The Ponderosa site will include self-contained compactors for household trash and commingled recycling, which are more sanitary and offer a more pleasant appearance than the traditional open-top containers. An attendant will also be on duty when the site, operating from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. every day except for Wednesdays and Sundays.
As a reminder, household trash should be bagged while recycled materials should not be. Plastic films should not be included with recycling. Grocery store bags, shrink wrap and other films should be recycled at your local retailer that collects plastic bags for recycling.
