City Relocates Recycling Bins From East-Side Walmart
The City of Casper will relocate the recycling depot at the east-side Walmart on Thursday, according to a news release.
Its replacement will open at Viking Court, near Wyoming Boulevard across from Verda James Elementary School.
“We are relocating the depot to city-owned property,” the city's solid waste manager Cynthia Langston said in a news release.
“Walmart has been very generous in allowing us to have our recycling depot located there until we could arrange for a permanent location," Langston said.
These are the other recycling depots in Casper:
- Wyoming Boulevard near the west entrance to the Central Wyoming Fairgrounds.
- Rocky Mountain Discount Sports.
- Paradise Valley pool.
- Meals on Wheels.
- North Casper soccer fields in the east parking lot along K Street.
- Huber Park.
- The Balefill.
All depots have self-serve bins for cardboard, white paper, newspaper, magazines, number one and number two plastic bottles, aluminum cans, and glass, Langston said.
“All these commodities, with the exception of glass, are taken to Wyoming Recycling and sold for recycling, while the glass is crushed and reused at the solid waste facility,” she said.
