Public can help by separating, marking recyclables

2021-01-13 - Adair County, KY - Photo by Linda Waggener,
The Adair County Recycling Center has been covered up lately. We still have no inmate labor and we are receiving recycling from other counties as far as Cave City due to COVID-19 and their recycling centers being closed. The two weeks after Christmas people were backed up to the road dropping off recycling.

We have one full time employee and two part time currently (one will be returning to school later this week) that are trying to keep up with the demand. We have had one baler out of service since the week before Christmas that is primarily used for cardboard that we are having trouble finding someone to fix.

We receive truckloads of cardboard weekly from businesses and that have only amplified since the holidays. The employees have been coming in on the days the recycling center is not open to the public to keep up with demand.

The best way the public can help is to separate all recyclable items and mark them correctly so it takes less time to sort them all.
