Due to abuse, the drop-off recycling bin located at Midstate Salvage has been removed. The bins were put in place to give Christian County residents the ability to recycle their items through Midstate, however many ended up using the bins more as a waste bin than as a recycling bin.
Debbie LeVault, educator with the Christian County Solid Waste Management Department spoke with Regional Radio News and shared that people were putting things such as motor oil and carpeting into the bins.
There are still recycling options for Christian County residents. Midstate will still accept many recyclables with the exception of plastics and glass during their normal business hours. Residents can also sign up for Cleeton Sanitation’s curbside recycling program.
Midstate is open Monday through Friday from 8 until 4, and Saturdays from 8 until Noon.
