Recycling gets a boost

Dedicated recyclers in Lebanon and Marion County may not have to wait much longer before they can once again dispose of the glass and plastic they’ve been accumulating at home since the City of Lebanon’s voluntary recycling program shut down its operation, except for newspaper collecting, just after the first of the year.
Lebanon’s City Council gave the green light at its April 12 meeting, when it agreed to pick up half the bill for a storage shed at the City Barn.
The city’s collection efforts were temporarily stopped because the recycling bins, placed on the parking area outside the City Barn on North Woodlawn Avenue, collected rainwater as well as glass and plastic. The recycling processor refused to accept more shipments from Lebanon unless the materials were dry.
