Recycling Center To Embark On Something New

It has been a very long time since we added a commodity to our list of acceptable items here at the recycling center. After research, discussions, and a generous grant through the Elk County Community Foundation, we are just about ready to embark on something new. We are poised to start taking plastic bags and other types of #2 and #4 film plastic. Over the course of the next week or so we will offer information on our Facebook. We're also hoping to talk to our local media about this effort. The list of acceptable material is substantial and we want to include not only residential plastic, but plastic film from our commercial and industrial sectors. The biggest takeaway right off the bat is that this material must be clean and dry. We encourage folks to ask questions. And we are hoping to have some sort of plastic recycling workshop this summer to better educate the public.
