New convenience center cleaner, but ‘a little confusing’
The new King George Convenience and Recycle Center has a homey touch not usually seen at such facilities. There’s a picket fence around the front of it.
“People will eventually drive by this to get to a park,” said Thomas Cue, director of the King George Landfill. “I wanted it to look nice.”
Cue was at the center at 6 a.m. today to mark the opening of the new facility. It’s off State Route 205, past the King George Elementary School.
Cue didn’t just direct customers to one of four new compactors at the new, paved site. He lifted black bags of garbage from trunks and truck beds, calling it “first day opening help.”
He and attendant Arthur Harvey also tried to explain new traffic patterns.
There’s one entrance and one exit. Residents can go to either side of four compactors to dump their trash, meaning eight vehicles can unload at once.
Three of the bins are for household garbage and the fourth is for single-stream recycling
“It’s very nice, but it is a little confusing,” said Beth Pelto, who wasn’t sure which trash compactor she was supposed to use. “I think it’s great, and once they put up some signs, that’ll help.”
