In 2013, we once again expanded the number of recycling locations available in Cass County. We had thirteen locations in partnership with Town & Country Disposal where residents could drop off materials 24/7.
Unfortunately, since WCA bought Town & Country Disposal, they have been phasing out all the drop-off recycling bins that the CCSC and Town & Country partnered to make available. After several unsuccessful discussions with WCA, we regret to say the only bins that will remain are those that an entity (such as a City or private business) are willing to pay a monthly fee to WCA to continue.
The only places currently available for drop-off recycling at this time are on Schug Ave in Peculiar (on the City of Peculiar property next to the Lions Club) and near the Ray-Pec High School.
It may be helpful for WCA to hear from you committed recyclers about the need to provide this very important community service that makes it possible for us to dispose of our household waste in a responsible manner!
In the meantime, the CCSC will be seeking to learn of any alternative means to again provide drop-off recycling locations.
