We are in the process of detailing the recycling trailer to prevent the mixing of the metal, plastic and paper products we collect.
Our goal is to make recycling as easy on our citizens as we can. We are determined to increase our recycling rates each year. The national goal to recycle, renew and reuse 90 percent of our residue cannot be met until each individual in the country makes an effort to resist throwing away “stuff.” Using the available sources for disposal is the logical way to achieve our goal,
We will have the trailer ready for action the weekend of Sept. 10 at the Elk Creek Fire Station, where it is now located. The following weekend, the 17th, it will be relocated to the Little Mount Fire Station. Each weekend into fall the trailer will be at a fire station.
When your turn comes, you will have that Saturday and Sunday to drop off your recyclables, saving you a drive to the recycling center on Industrial Drive.
This plan does not affect the recycling center, as it will be open and staffed as normal. The addition of the trailer is to make recycling easier for our citizens out in the county who do not come to Taylorsville on a regular basis.
If you have any questions, call me at 502-477-3218.
