A recycling backup in Buncombe County is partially caused by an equipment malfunction at a recycling center.
American Recycling WNC says part of their processing machinery broke last week. Owner Ron Moore says he told garbage company Waste Pro, the facility couldnt process all of Buncombe Countys recycling at the moment.
Waste Pro tells News 13 they took the recycling to the only other facility in the area, Curbside Management in Woodfin. The owner of Curbside says they are working around the clock to process all of the recycling.
American Recycling says they plan to be back operating at full capacity on Tuesday.
