New Mayor and Two New Councilmen

Recycling Day in Lovilia is Saturday, November 14th at 8am-10am.

Remember to bring your recycling items to the trailer parked across from the Lovilia Post Office.

They accept corrugated cardboard, office paper shredded or not , magazines, and newspapers.  These have to be bagged separately as they are processed separately.  They take food cans that are washed out and labels removed.  Glass jars that are washed out and labels removed. Any metal rings around the neck of the jar must be removed.  Lids can not be recycled.  They take washed out #1 PETE plastic and #2 HDPE plastic. All lids and plastic rings around the opening must be discarded by you before bringing these containers.  If you have any questions ask the employee who will put your items in the trailer for you.   Remember this is a free service provided by Monroe County.  Take advantage of it and help make our landfill last more years so they don’t have to start a new one.  Also it puts these valuable resources back into use.  Plus it can save you money.  Since I recycle, burn my food wrappers in a barrel, and compost food scraps, and one trip to landfill per year with what is left, I don’t have to even have garbage collection so I save that monthly fee for other family needs.  Try it, you have nothing to lose but a small storage area in your house or garage.
