Recycling Returns to Alton

By Paul Ploumis

RecyclingMonster - Single stream recycling has returned to Alton in the form of a drop-off point downtown. The large bin was recently brought to the city-owned lot just off Piasa at 5th Street, filling the void created when the county removed the bin on the Lowe’s parking lot.

Madison County Sustainability Coordinator Andi Yancey tells The Big Z they had to deal with people illegally dumping there:

This is one of seven locations in Madison County where you can take your recycling. There are also sites in Edwardsville, Granite City, Hamel, Marine, Maryville, and New Douglas.
