CORBIN, Ky. (WYMT) - Folks who live in Corbin used to only be able to recycle during the week through the Corbin City Recycling Center, but now they can recycle any time.
Two portable recycling bins which people can use whenever they want are now in the city, and they have been for a month. They were funded through a grant the City of Corbin received from Kentucky PRIDE. Corbin recycling officials say convenience is not the only benefit from the new bins.
"It keeps all this stuff out of the landfill and it saves the environment because eventually, if you keep it just in the landfill, it's going to end up in the water streams and stuff and that's what we're trying to prevent," said Steven Mills, the City of Corbin Director of Recycling.
One of them is located in the parking lot of the East Side Landromat and another is at the Forest Hill Shopping Center.
