ARTESIA — Artesia Clean & Beautiful will no longer accept plastic for recycling.

Rainbow Recycling in Carlsbad, which picks up AC&B’s plastic for recycling, is no longer recycling plastic, as the expense outweighs the market value. At this time, Artesians may take number 1 and 2 plastic to Roswell for recycling.

For more information, call the AC&B office at 748­3192.
