GILA COUNTY — Over the last week, Gila County has removed the green recycling bins it had provided in Globe-Miami to Russell Gulch Landfill and has placed them under surveillance, with the hope that this will keep them from being filled with trash and will allow them to remain available to the public at this new location.
Although problems with trash and other dangerous contaminants in the bins have been continuous, in recent months the bins have been more than 50% contaminated, which has forced their removal.
They will be located just before the gate to the landfill at 5891 Hope Lane.
Gila County thanks those residents who make the extra effort to recycle and help keep plastics out of our landfills.
Call the landfill scale house with any questions at 928-476-3350.
