Butte Creates Short-Term Alternatives for Recycling

Posted: Updated:
BUTTE -

Butte-Silver Bow County is creating short-term recycling alternatives after its primary recycling facility shut down at the end of November.

Since A&S Metals in Butte closed, the county is now asking other recycling companies to step up and provide recycling bins throughout town.

As part of that, Aware Inc. will set up bins outside the post office on Dewey and at the National Center of Appropriate Technology.

Pacific Steele located on Gaylord Street and H&H Trading will also accept cardboard and metals.

"They stepped up and said, "Hey, Butte-Silver Bow has developed this recycling effort in the last several years. The Chief executive, it's an important project for him. What can we do?" No one asked, "This is what we're going to charge." They just all stepped up," said Butte-Silver Bow Enrichment Director Ed Randall.

Through December A&S Metals will have bins located on Platinum Street and another at the Butte Civic Center.
