Bob Klaas, above, emptied a “blue box” yesterday at the new recycle transfer station that has been built on Sixth Street West (behind the Public Works yard). At right, the area includes a pull-off on the south side of the road, where vehicles can drive up so the occupant(s) can get out and dump co-mingled recyclables in any of the four large bins seen here 24 hours a day, seven days a week. In addition to this new service, bi-weekly curbside “blue box” pick-up will continue as normal.
