Recycling center planning for renovations

February 4, 2014

ST. MARYS – The Elk County Community Recycling Center, located in the Stackpole Complex in St. Marys, is currently seeking bids for new flooring within the recycling center. Quotes have been collected to do the repairs with the latest quote figuring $11,900 from Bill Kinkead, a contractor operating out of Ridgway. However, Elk County Solid Waste Authority officials are hopeful members of the North Central Pennsylvania Regional Planning and Development Commission will be able to help offset a portion of the costs.

An initiative championed by the Elk County Veterans' Affairs office to reach out to area military members serving outside the continental United States has been a resounding success.
The office started with just three individuals announced in a Dec. 5 article but since then, the list has ballooned to 11.
"The donations have been coming in and we had some collection sites set up," said Leslie Neal, director of Elk County Veterans' Affairs. "The people have been very generous and we haven't even put out the bulk of our collection bins."
