Recycling to expand in Birmingham area | al.com: BIRMINGHAM, Alabama -- A major expansion of recycling efforts and options is under way in the Birmingham area, including a program to pick up glass from bars and restaurants and another to establish more recycling collection locations.
The expansion is powered by two years worth of grants totaling more than $500,000 from the Alabama Department of Environment Management. The results of the grants, which were awarded to a partnership headed by the Jefferson County Department of Health, will become more evident this month and will roll out throughout next year.
"It's just a massive expansion of recycling," said Michael Churchman, executive director of the Alabama Environmental Council, a major player in the effort.
