Boxes, paper, trees can be recycled here

The Letcher County Recycling Center is encouraging county residents to recycle paper and boxes used to wrap Christmas presents.

David “Tiny” Caudill, who works at the recycling center, said the center has already received a lot of gift wrap this week which he guessed was from early holiday parties. Caudill said gift boxes and wadded up Christmas paper can be placed in blue bags along with other recyclables.

Letcher County Judge/Executive Jim Ward said people can drop off Christmas trees at the recycling center. Ward said the county will either use them for fish habitat at Fishpond Lake or will chip them up into pieces with a wood chipper.

The Letcher County Recycling Center is located at 1447 Highway 931 South. Call the recycling center at 632-2267.
