Republic Services experienced a fire in a portion of their facility on Friday, February 16, 2018. This has impacted its ability to process normal volume of materials and has forced them to close the public drop-off site located on Benton Street until further notice. The City encourages residents to use their curbside recycling or take it to other community drop-off locations. Learn more at www.icgov.org/recycling.
