Lawton recycling sites to be removed Saturday

LAWTON, Okla._Five recycling stations across the city of Lawton will be removed Saturday.

The City of Lawton says the recycling stations have been misused by people throwing away regular trash. The recycling company contracted to maintain the sites ended up taking everything to the city dump because of the non-recycled that was mixed in and left. As a result, the City of Lawton will not renew their contract with the recycling company.

However, officials say they are not giving up on the idea. They are looking into alternatives, like building a city recycling facility so they can offer curb side pick-up.
