Huntingburg recycling site again accepting oilFebruary 13, 2018
From Local Sources
HUNTINGBURG — Dubois County’s recycling site on Ell Creek Road in Huntingburg is again accepting used motor oil for recycling.
The site — one of eight in the county that offers free motor oil recycling for residents — has been waiting on the installation of a new waste oil container for several months. The previous container had developed a leak and was deemed unsafe for use.
The new waste oil container sits on a concrete base and is enclosed by a lean-to, which will protect it and keep it operational longer. The oil filter and antifreeze recycling containers are also now housed under this lean-to.
The Ireland and Pine Ridge sites are also getting new oil containers and a new lean-to in 2018, and the solid waste district and highway department plan to continue adding the protective buildings to the rest of the sites in following years.
The used oil containers are for Dubois County residents only. Residents need to check in with the attendant to recycle their oil for free. Businesses having waste oil to recycle can contact the district for other recycling options. Information on recycling and proper disposal in Dubois County can be found at www.duboiscountyrecycles.org, on the district’s Facebook page or by calling 812-482-7865.
