Reminder: Recycling day changed for ’Busco

The new recycling collection map for Whitley County shows concise division lines. Churubusco and the Smith Township area, pictured in pink, will now be collected every other Monday.

In the old recycling pickup map, the Smith Township area was confusing and difficult to determine pickup days for properties on the borders.

CHURUBUSCO — Starting in 2017, Churubusco residents should plan for a change in their recycling pickup day.

In the past, the county collected Churubusco’s recycling every other Friday. Collection in areas outside of town was on Mondays.

Now, recycling pickup will be every other Monday for the entire northeast corner of Whitley County. Recycling pickup days have changed for many other areas in the county as well. Large maps depicting the new routes are on display in various places throughout the county, such as the County Government Center and Courthouse.

Residents are reminded to have their recycling bins to the curb by 5 a.m. on the day of their collection — especially now that the routes are changing.

Solid Waste District Manager Jorell Tucker said even if your pickup day hasn’t changed, your pickup time likely will change.
