ST. MARYS – Johnsonburg Borough plans to discontinue its drop-off recycling program in January, the Elk County Solid Waste Authority (SWA) announced Tuesday.
The Borough informed the SWA of its plans in a letter, asking that their drop-off container is pulled by Jan. 1, 2020.
Recycling/Solid Waste Coordinator Bekki Titchner expressed disappointment in the Borough’s decision.
“I know that Johnsonburg (residents) were very supportive of the recycling program,” she said. “We would hope that (the Borough) reconsiders but it appears they made up their minds.”
