The City of Lebanon will reopen its recycling center on the weekends starting Saturday, Aug. 27.

"We'll try it again and see what happens," Lebanon Mayor Gary Crenshaw said.

Last month, the city limited access to the recycling center, located on Woodlawn Avenue, after repeated incidents of illegal dumping at the center.

Crenshaw said the city didn't want to close the center on weekends, but it had to curb the illegal dumping.

City Administrator John O. Thomas said the center would remain open to the public throughout the weekend on one condition.

"As long as there is no illegal dumping activity," he said.
