Recycling event at airport in Peru shuts down in less than an hour

Posted by wlpo on October 22, 2016

It took less than an hour for the 40,000 ton limit of recyclables to be reached Saturday morning in Peru.

Lines were long on Plank Road well before the drop off event started at 10 o’clock. All along city officials had said they would go until they took 40,000 tons of electronics such as televisions and computers. Only folks living in Peru and La Salle were allowed to drop off electronics.

Peru Police Chief Doug Bernabei says Peru and La Salle plan to do more in the future.
