Recycling center to close for weeks



PROSPECT — The town’s recycling center will be closed at 2:30 p.m. Saturday and will reopen on Feb. 22, town officials said.

The recycling center on Plank Road is being closed due to budget cuts, Mayor Robert Chatfield said.

Two budget proposals for the 2013-14 fiscal year failed at referendums last spring before a third plan gained approval.  

Once the recycling center is reopened, it will operate during regular hours from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Wednesdays and Saturdays, he said.
