Open for more than four years, the Levelland Recycling Center is busier than ever these days.
The facility on A&M Lane has multiple uses for different people, and its materials can be used for a wide range of applications.
City residents – and three restaurants – regularly bring used cardboard containers to the center.
The cardboard, along with used newspaper and papers, is baled and hauled off by a company for recycling.
The center, which is part of the Transfer Station, accepts the following materials:
Brush and limbs, aluminum cans, oil and filters, white goods, metal, tires, shredded paper, plastic bottles, office paper, magazines, cardboard and newsprint.
The center opened in 2009, after several Levelland students made a presentation to the city council on the need for such a facility.
It is not making a profit for the city, though.
