Recycling Suspended Another Week


Officials still waiting for pumps at Tri-State Resource Recovery

Evansville’s Recycling program will remain suspended for another week. WNIN’s John Gibson has the update:

The city says pumps needed to operate the baling equipment at Tri-State Resource Recovery will not arrive until after Labor Day.

The baling machine malfunctioned, prompting residential recycling collections to be suspended this week.

Now, recycling collections will be suspended through September 9th.

The city says recycling collections should resume for week B on Monday, September 12. Recycling collections for week A will resume on Monday, September 19.

If those waits are too long, city residents can drop off recyclables at the Laubscher Meadows Convenience Center from 7:30 am to 4:00 pm Monday through Friday.
