Forty-four bales of corrugated cardboard, weighing 45,200 pounds, from the Polk County Recycle Center was loaded onto a truck Thursday, headed to a mill in Louisiana. A spokesperson for Polk County Recycling & Beautification (PCRB), the 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that runs the local recycling center, said that unfortunately, the price of cardboard has dropped significantly since the last time a load was sold, so this load is only worth about $1,000. However, that is still 45,200 pounds of material that has been diverted from the Polk County Landfill. For more information on PCRB and the recycling center, go to pcrbtexas.org.
