Recycling Available in Ord

The opportunity to recycle is now available in Ord. Custer County Recycling has announced that they have provided a recycle trailer for Ord area recycling use. They will pick up the trailer when it is full. This trailer will be provided as long as the area remains clean and totally litter free and only the accepted materials are put in the bins. If you see that the trailer is full, please do not leave your materials on the ground, but call the Loup Basin RC&D office at 308-728-3393 or check back the following week to leave your recyclables.

The trailer will have bins for paper, plastic and aluminum/tin cans. Paper bins can be used to collect newspapers, magazines, phone books, office paper, junk mail and shredded paper (no cardboard). The plastic bins can be used to recycle plastic with numbers 1-7 on the bottom-(no “Tupperware” type hard plastic, no automotive fluid containers, including oil containers). Bins will be available for the recycling of aluminum/tin cans. No items are excepted except those listed above.

Please, no trash bags filled with items (dump your items out), NO oil, tires, or glass items. You may call 308-728-3393, Loup Basin RC&D office, if you have any questions about what you can bring to recycle.

If you have never recycled, this is your chance to get started. Manufacturing with recycled materials saves energy, water and produces less air and water pollution than manufacturing with virgin materials. It takes 95% less energy to recycle an aluminum can than to make one from raw materials, one ton of recycled paper saves 17 trees, and recycling saves landfill space.

The trailer will be located at the Valley County Ag Complex in Ord at the same location as it was last year. If you are unfamiliar with the trailer location, there is a sign at the northwest corner of the fair grounds and a road leading to the trailer. Thank you for recycling.
