We're now commingled! Recycling containers at the Jennings County Recycling Center are now set up for commingled recycling. Not only can collection trucks hold considerable more materials in a single load, but new recycling technology allows materials to be sorted later at a central location. An added bonus is that the Jennings Co. Recycling Center can now accept #3-#7 plastics along with its traditional #1-#2.
