Neighborhood pays price of county recycling bins

NEW CASTLE — Editor, The News:

We are grateful to Jeffrey Koscinski and his recent letter to the editor, on behalf of those of us who live near the county recycling bins on the corner of Court and Walnut streets.

It has been a nightmare having these bins in our neighborhood. People do not only recycle items that are supposed to be recycled, but there is garbage, housewares, dirty diapers and anything else people want to get rid of.

When the bins are full, people just dump their stuff on the ground and go away. Debris blows all over the neighborhood, and it becomes our job to clean our properties.

We have often complained and yet the area is still a mess. We wish the Lawrence County commissioners would move this filthy eyesore to one of their neighborhoods.

Since we know that that will never happen, we do ask people who use the bins to recycle only items that are allowed and stop using our neighborhood as the county dump.
