Recycling Center gets a make over

"We will begin bailing garbage next week. That is going to make a tremendous difference in the landfill," said Sain.

The Hardeman County Recycling Center received a make-over in the last four weeks. The recycling center, which has only been bailing recyclables in the crowded and hazardous building, now provides the ability for the county to utilize the resource as a means to solve additional problems with the landfill.

Hardeman County Mayor Jimmy Sain gave Solid Waste and Landfill Director Gene Mills and the employees a month to 'clean it up.' With the help of Hardeman County Sheriff John Doolen, who provided manpower with a work crew of county inmates, the recycle center has been cleaned and ready to be a valuable operating center for the county.

"We will begin bailing garbage next week. This is going to make a tremendous difference in the landfill," said Sain.

For the breakdown of how the cleaning of the recycling center was accomplished, including what this means for the county's taxpayers, catch the complete coverage in next week's Bulletin-Times.
