Staff Writer

ST. MARYS – The Elk County Solid Waste Authority discussed new equipment which was recently installed at the Community Recycling Center under a 902 Recycling Grant during its monthly meeting on Tuesday.
A few weeks ago, a new baler and cardboard shredder was installed at the recycling center.
Solid Waste Enforcement Officer Dave Stubber presented a time lapse video of the new baler and cardboard shredder at work. He stated that the new baler/shredder can now “double the amount of bales” than before which is “really awesome.”
Bekki Titchner, recycling/solid waste coordinator, was present via speaker phone. She provided the board with grant updates, including the need for new containers at drop-off locations in Elk County municipalities.
