The Athens-Limestone recycling center will close next week

ATHENS, Ala. (WHNT) – After announcing plans to close in March, Keep Athens-Limestone Beautiful has finalized the closing date for the Athens-Limestone Recycling Center.

According to a post on Facebook, the recycling center will permanently close on Friday, April 15. Bins will be available at the center until 3:00 p.m. each weekday until the center closes.

KALB said the decision does not do not affect the selective collection provided by the city of Athens. However, the people of the county will have to find another way.

KALB officials told News 19 there are no plans to reopen.

Custom Polymers, Inc., owner of the building that KALB leased for the recycling center, told News 19 that the group has decided to sell the building.

Athens Limestone Recycling has been a valued tenant of this building for many years. They had previously expressed interest in purchasing the building, but recently informed us that they were no longer interested. Consequently, the group of partners decided to put the building on the market and gave notice of termination to the recycling center so that it could prepare the property for sale.
