Hi-Line residents are getting so into recycling plastics, e-waste, cardboard and paper that there's not enough room at the existing monthly collection location.

Starting this month, recycling will be held at Holiday Village Mall.

Candi Zion, chair of Recycle Hi-Line, the group that organizes recycling efforts, said that starting Saturday, Nov. 16, people can drop off recyclable materials at Holiday Village Mall.

The collection point will be open the third Saturday of the month as usual.

Collection will take place at the mall through the winter.

In the spring, it will move to Pacific Steel and Recycling, 1805 U.S. Highway 2, she said.

"Our baby has outgrown our location," Zion said.

There have been traffic jams and backups at the downtown location, she said.

There used to be a slower pace at the recycling drives, she said. But more people are recycling, and it has become quite crowded.

"We are so grateful to Hi-Line people for taking part," she said.

She said Recycle Hi-Line volunteers will be able to accept plastics 1 and 2, items such as soda bottles and milk containers, as well as plastics 5, margarine tubs and the like.

Paper and cardboard will be accepted, as will most e-waste materials except televisions and computer monitors.

Because we all know if Bob Rice was Mayor, he wouldn't be mugging for a photo op and begging for attention.

I wonder if Mayor Solomon will be there getting his picture taken now that the election is over?
