Curbside recycling discontinued in Sullivan

Top News

SULLIVAN, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) –Republic Services, beginning next month, will no longer offer curbsite recycling services to the City of Sullivan.

Since this is currently a bi-weekly service, the last service days for recycling will be on July 24 and July 31.

Residents are asked to leave recycling carts out after the last pickup for removal.

“We encouraged our residents to recycle the correct way, but the curbside recycled materials continued to have too high of a contamination rate to be effective,” City of Sullivan Mayor Clint Lamb said. “I am not sure what else we could have done other than come to everyone’s home, sort and rinse their recycling, save their products, and pull the tote to the curb. Republic Services remains a valued partner to us, and we continue to promote a clean city through other avenues.”

City Wide Clean Up efforts will continue through the month of July, and the Sullivan County Recycling Center will still serve as an option for residents to recycle.

“Cleaning up our city will continue to be a priority. Recycling services provide our community with resources for living in a clean, comfortable environment, and we will continue to promote those sentiments within our community,” Lamb said.
