After working hard all year to collect and process the county's recyclables, the Elk County Recycling Center staff and volunteers will take a break as the facility closes from Sunday, Dec. 23, through Friday, Dec. 28.
"We've never done this before," said Recycling/Solid Waste Coordinator Bekki Titchner. "And it's just a nice break for all the [volunteers] that help us out here… It just gives everyone here a little breather, and then we're back in business the following week."
"It's a week that we're hoping [people] will just set the wrapping paper and boxes in the corner and enjoy their friends and family," Titchner said with a laugh. "And just get to it the following week."
She noted that residents will still have some recycling options with the drop-off bins available throughout the area, and the center will be open their regular hours before the weekend for those who need to get rid of some of their holiday waste. Drop-off locations include one at the municipal building in Kersey for local residents open during township hours; 24-hour locations include several bins in Ridgway on State Street behind Cenni's, at 81 East Teaberry Street in Weedville, at 320 Faries Street in Wilcox, and at 100 Main Street in Johnsonburg.
