Grassroots Recycling Inc. opened with a bang yesterday at the Milford Mill Metro Station.
The bang was from the glass containers and aluminum cans tossed into recycling bins by a steady stream of people. The center, which will be open every Saturday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., also welcomes newspapers and plastic bottles, organizers said.
There were cars in the parking lot even before the 10 a.m. opening.
"This is a great idea," said Nancy Dietz of Woodlawn. She said she has been recycling for years, although she had to travel farther to find a center.
