For many years our recycling center has worked with the Limestone County Commission to place large green recycling trailers in strategic locations throughout the county. Recently cardboard collection trailers were added to three of those locations on a trial basis.
We are happy to say that the trailers have been well used and we are working on providing cardboard collection trailers at more county locations.
KALB is also excited to share that a recycling trailer has been placed at Athens Bible School in an effort to make recycling easier for those city residents that wish to support our local non-profit recycling center.
Recycling trailers located at the following locations are for community use and are serviced by the Athens-Limestone Recycling Center on a continual basis.
