MARBLE HILL, MO  (KFVS)-- Before volunteers turned a former Bollinger county livestock sale barn into a recycling center, people interested in recycling traveled to places like Cape Girardeau, Jackson and Perryville to drop off all their items. For the last two years, organizers worked to secure grants. On  Saturday, Aug. 14th, they will now open the new Recycling Center on Highway 51, seven miles north of Marble Hill.

The site will be staffed with volunteers to help you sort on Wednesdays and Saturdays from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.  The center accepts newspaper, magazines, #1,#2 and #5 plastic containers, corrugated cardboard, gray board, white office paper, junk mail, aluminum, metal cans and plastic shopping bags.  All items must be washed and dried.   Caps on plastic containers are not allowed.  Paper may be shredded.  There is a small fee for electronics.

This is a do-it-yourself facility. Drive up, sort your items, and recycle!
