Funkstown recycling bins to be removed

Hagerstown, MD. July 1: The Washington County Division of Environmental Management (DEM) Department of Solid Waste has announced that at the request of the Town of Funkstown, the recycling containers located at the Funkstown Fire Station will be removed on Friday, July 15, 2011.
"We appreciate the recycling efforts of citizens who used the Funkstown recycling containers over the years. We also remind county citizens that the unmanned recycling containers are placed only on properties whose owners are willing to accept the containers, and those property owners or jurisdictions can ask to have the boxes removed at any time," DEM Deputy Director Cliff Engle said.
The County continues to maintain recycling bins at all locations of the Landfill including the transfer stations, and in the Boonsboro, Clear Spring, Keedysville, Maugansville, and Sharpsburg communities.
