Curbside recycling ends Tuesday in Warren County

BOWLING GREEN, Ky.- Tuesday is the last day for curbside recycling in Warren County.

Last December, Warren County Fiscal Court learned that Southern Recycling would be ending its curbside recycling pickup program at the end of this month.

Southern Recycling has lost around $30,000 a month since last year after China stopped purchasing American recyclables.

35% of Warren County residents utilize the curbside service, which began about 25 years ago.

Fiscal Court is in the process of finding a new franchise.
