Last updated on Tuesday, December 20, 2011

(BLOOMINGTON) - A new recycling center has opened in downtown Bloomington in the parking lot behind the Showers Building on 10th Street.

The center is part of a collaboration of the City of Bloomington, Monroe County Solid Waste Management District and Pedal Power owner Chad Roeder. The goal is to make recycling more sustainable and accessible to downtown residents.

The recycling center is open Monday through Saturday from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Materials accepted at the center include:

* Steel and aluminum cans (no scrap metal)

* Plastics #1-7

* Clear and colored glass bottles and jars (no window glass, mirrors, light bulbs, etc)

*Mixed paper/fibrous products (junk mail, newspaper, office paper, paperboard, etc)

*Corrugated cardboard

All materials must be free from food contamination, and paper and cardboard products must be dry. The center does not currently accept hazardous materials such as paint, aerosols, poisons or batteries, but these items may be taken to the Monroe County Recycling Center at 3400 S. Walnut Street.
