New recycling solution of Elkhart County

ELKHARTY COUNTY, Ind. --New curbside pickup recycling solutions were announced by Borden Waste-Away Service, Inc., for Elkhart County area residents.

Commissioners of Elkhart County voted to discontinue the county's five recycling locations due to misuse by some individuals, in November.

In agreement with John Bowers, the county landfill manager, the decision was made after improper disposal of items like broken electronics and old mattresses, including a broken jacuzzi tub.
