Defenders Cancel Huntley Recycling Program The recycling drop-off bin in Huntley will be removed and the site permantly closed on Friday January 12th. The decision to discontinue the Huntley recycling program was forced by a combination of increased costs for handling the materials and the drop in price of old newspapers sold to be recycled. "We have operated the drop-off site in Huntley on a break even basis as a service to local residents," Jerry Paulson, director of the McHenry County Defenders, explained. "But since last June when the price paid for old newspapers dropped we have been losing $150 - $200 per month on the project." The Defenders have attempted to Tmd ways to keep the Huntley program going, but the not-for-profit organization cannot afford to continue to run it at a loss according to Paulson. "We thank the people of Huntley and Grafton Township for recycling and urge them to continue to use other recycling progranns," Paulson said. Marengo Disposal offers curbside recycling services to its Huntley customers and Crystal Lake Disposal will continue to pick up newspapers at the curb. The McHenry County defenders operate recycling centers in Woodstock, Crystal Lake and McHenry. Call them at 815-338-0393 for information about their programs.
