From Herald Staff Reports
JASPER — Ready to recycle? PaulJ. Voegerl Jr. wants to help.
Voegerl, of Holland, where he is deputy town marshal, recently opened Monster Recycling of Indiana Inc. at 1316 Vine St. in Jasper.
The indoor recycling facility accepts cardboard, all plastics, glass bottles, soup cans, electronics and household appliances. In addition, customers are paid for items including metals, aluminum cans and batteries. Tires are accepted for a small fee.
“When my father (Paul Voegerl Sr.) and I bought the former Jasper Wood Products building we joked that undertaking fixing it up would be a monster job,” Voegerl said, explaining the business’ name.
Renovation of the building began in December and included cleaning up items left behind, removing old machinery, fixing windows and doors and repairing the roof.
“My father and I talked about many different things that could be done with the building before and after we purchased it,” Voegerl said. “The idea of an indoor recycling facility seemed like a great idea. It offers many advantages, such as a clean indoor place to recycle your household items for free without worries of a getting a nail or other object in your tire. The large building was a great opportunity to offer a new idea to our community.”
Retired from the U.S. Marine Corps, Voegerl has filled his staff with veterans, including Dave Voegerl, his uncle and a Navy veteran, Mark Reller, also retired from the Marine Corps, and Army veterans Logan Powell and William Zastawink. Voegerl’s father also helps out at the recycling center when he is not working at his own business, Jasper Embroidery and Screen Printing.
A ribbon cutting to mark Monster Recycling of Indiana’s grand opening will take place at 10 a.m. Friday.
The recycling center is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturdays and other times by appointment. On Mondays, Wednesday and Fridays items are picked up from businesses and customers with loads larger than they are able to transport.
The phone number is 827-9560. The email address is Paulsellspromo@yahoo.com. The business also can be found on Facebook.
