Lovilia Recycling Day March 9th

Come recycle between 8-10 a. m. Trailer will be across from the post office.

For those who can not make it but want to recycle.  The county recycle building has been remodeled and now you can go there 24 hours a day on seven days a week.  The building is easy to find by turning off south Hwy 5 at the sign at the south end of the A.Y M. factory and go one block and it is on your left.  You will see all the little “Windows” that are marked for you to sort and deposit the items.  It is now self service.
