The Community Recycling Center, located in the Stackpole Complex in St. Marys, recently began baling plastic and other items that have been received since it opened its doors at the beginning of October. According to Bekki Titchner, Elk County recycling coordinator, so far the center has processed eight bales of plastic and two bales of corrugated cardboard. She noted that the center has been receiving items at a tremendous rate since discontinuing the drop-off containers in St. Marys and eliminating the collection of plastic at other sites throughout the county.
