Tight quarters hinders recycling

-A A +A
By Katie Hogin

At the Roane County Recycling Center, space has become an issue.

“It’s really hard to take care of everything that needs to be done,” said solid waste coordinator Ralph Stewart.

Over the past five years, the recycling center’s intake of cardboard has soared from approximately 20 tons of cardboard a month to 20 tons a week.

The center uses its only building to sort and bale all of the recyclables, some that can be sold.

Stewart hopes funding soon will work in his favor to incorporate a new building with an automated baler.
