Recycling efforts didn’t take a break during the New Year’s holiday weekend. Volunteers were out at the Grangeville site on Day Road last Saturday, Jan. 3, gathering plastic, metal and cardboard brought in by patrons that morning. On average, the Grangeville site collects around 19,000 pounds of recycling per month that is transported to Lewis-Clark Recyclers in Lewiston for product repurposing. Idaho County Recycling reminds residents that volunteers are needed – especially for cardboard stomping — to operate its Grangeville, Cottonwood, Kooskia and Riggins collection sites. Also note, electronics (apart from batteries, monitors and TVs) can be recycled at the Grangeville site; check the list of accepted items at their Facebook page or on line at www.idahocounty.org .
