The City of Lebanon Recycling Center, located on Woodlawn Avenue, will now only be open Monday through Friday between 7 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. due to illegal dumping.
City Administrator John Thomas said the city has had problems with dumping before, but it recent weeks it has become constant.
“Mostly on weekends, we would come in and the dumpster would be full of furniture, tires, pallets, waters heaters … you name it,” he said.
In a few instances, workers have had to climb inside the dumpster to remove the illegal items. Thomas added that the county has allowed the city to take the illegal items to the dump station.
Because of the increased dumping, the center will now only be open during the hours city employees are at the center.
“We know that it's going to be an inconvenience for a lot of folks, but we've got to find a way to stop the illegal dumping,” Thomas said.
Any questions may be directed to City Hall at (270) 692-6272 or the Service Center (270) 692-4934.
