Drop-off Recycling Sites Closes Jan 30
The recycling drop-off area at Perkins and Water Streets (close to Kroger) here is Rushville, IN will no longer be available after January 30, 2017. The recycling containers will be pulled as demolition and site prep begins for the new jail.
“Clean Green Rush will have to suspend drop-off for a just few weeks as we prepare a new recycling area,” stated Carole Yeend, solid waste director. “While it may be inconvenient for a few weeks, this is an ideal opportunity to improve the way we recycle, honoring those who make the effort to do it properly. Not all paper, plastic, glass, or metal can be recycled.
In an effort to improve the service, work has begun to reshape recycling in Rush County at a new site that will have definite hours, will be somewhat monitored, will have a fence with a gate, and will have cameras that work. If all goes well, this new location should be ready by mid-to-late February. Watch for an announcement.
Recycling can be dropped-off just inside the gates at CGS Services, Inc. landfill just outside of Morristown, Indiana. Also, the City of Rushville provides another option for its residents with curbside recycling. To participate in program, call the Street Department (765-932-2575). You can leave a message and they will deliver to your door a sturdy toter with a green lid similar to your trash container. Curbside recycling is picked up every Friday.
