Lufkin Recycling Changes

by Christa Lollis

The city of Lufkin will soon be passing out new larger trash bins but they will also be taking away the blue recycling bins.   This summer the city will start picking up the unused recycling bins but that doesn't mean the recycling program is over. The solid waste department says they've actually had close to a thousand calls come in from Lufkin residents saying they don't want their bins taken because they want to keep recycling. If you call the recycling center and let them know not to pick up your cart you can continue to recycle.  To contact the recycling center you can call 633-0281.
