City Recycling Site Moving Friday

The drop-off location for recycling yard waste and glass is moving from Jones Drive to the grounds of the City of Elkins Street Department, at 1 Baxter Street. The new location will open to receive recyclables on Friday, January 13.

The new location for the containers is behind the Street Department garage. To reach the containers, drive past the garage, turn right on Chestnut Street, and turn right into the gravel lot behind the Street Department garage. Here is a dropped pin showing the precise location of the containers on Google Maps.

Melody Himes, the operations assistant, says the move is the result of a collaboration between the Wastewater Collection Department, which formerly hosted the drop-off site, and the Street Department.

“Over the years, we realized that the Wastewater Collection Department wasn’t the best location for the drop-off site, because it’s a tight spot for both customers and for the trucks that periodically need to empty the containers,” Himes says. “The guys at the Street Department did a phenomenal job setting up the new site, and we think it’s really going to work a lot better for everyone.”

The new site at Baxter Street includes raised wooden platforms to make it easier to dump both yard waste and glass into the containers.

“We think the new location will be even easier for everyone to access and use,” says Himes. “We’re really proud to offer this program and just want to make recycling as simple as possible for the Elkins community.”
