The Polk County Recycling Center sent its first truckload of flattened corrugated cardboard off Thursday, headed to a mill in Louisiana. The 40 bales totaled 42,060 pounds which will bring in about $2,250 which will be utilized to sustain operations. The center is operated by Polk County Recycling & Beautification, a nonprofit organization that has partnered with Polk County to provide a reliable recycling service for the residents of East Texas, sustained by grants, donations and the sale of recyclable materials. The center is located at 10311 Hwy. 146 in Livingston at the intersection of Hwy. 146 and FM 2665 and accepts #1-#7 plastics, flattened corrugated cardboard and aluminum and steel “tin” cans. It is open Tuesdays and Fridays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. In its first 10 months of operation, the center diverted over 69,000 pounds of materials from the Polk County Landfill.
