A new recycling location is officially open to replace the bins that were removed from the Memorial Park and Park and Ride sites. The new location is in back of Opportunity Knox at 17604 Coshocton Avenue in Mount Vernon. As a reminder, all City of Mt. Vernon residents are entitled to free curbside recycling through their trash hauler, but this site provides an additional option for all county residents to use. The DKMM Solid Waste District and the Knox County Commissioner’s Office both contributed funds to have the new location paved. Like all the other county bins, they will be serviced by Rumpke and emptied on Tuesdays and Fridays. For accepted recyclable lists, current events and recycling FAQs, please visit:
