Recyling Center proposed closing

Staff Writer

At the Dec. 24, 2018 Custer County Supervisors meeting, the board discussed closing the Recycling Center, located on the west edge of Broken Bow, due to cost. (NOTE: This has been corrected from "the last meeting".)

Concerned citizens are worried about what may happen if the center is closed, including illegal burning, illegal dumping and illegal burying as well as the increased impact on the landfill.

If you want the center to remain open to accepting recyclable goods (plastic, aluminum, cardboard), you are encouraged to let your supervisor know.

Attend the Public Hearing at 10:45 a.m. on Tuesday, March 12, 2019 in the third floor Supervisor's Meeting Room at the Custer County Courthouse in Broken Bow.

You can also contact your supervisor to let them know that you support and use the recycling center and you want it to stay open.

The Supervisors are scheduled to tour the Recycling Center at 11:30 a.m., Tuesday, Feb. 26.

Read more about the potential closing of the Recycling Center in the Feb. 21, 2019 Custer County Chief.
