Mayor Lee Posey announced at Monday night’s City Council meeting, Aug. 14, that the recycling center located on Mill Street at the ADM facility will be moved. Fed up with the illegal dumping of trash including mattresses, furniture, tires and food, Posey said the six bins will be moved inside the gates. The area will be accessible to the public during the Public Works Department’s operating hours Monday-Friday from 6:30 am – 4 pm and special hours on Saturdays from 5-10 pm.
“People just aren’t doing it properly,” said Posey. The new location inside the facility gates will afford more security to the recycling operations.
