Recycling, a habit that we'll all have to develop, just got a little easier in the Pasadena area.
The county-sponsored monthly recycling center at the Riviera Beach Fire Department will move to a larger and more accessible location. Beginning tomorrow, the new site will be located at the end of Coast Court Road, between Lake Shore Plaza and the post office on Mountain Road. The center will accept recyclables from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the third Saturday of each month.
Items that will be accepted are: newspapers, tied with string or packed into paper grocery bags; corrugated cardboard, tied with string or packed into paper grocery bags; aluminum cans; plastic screw-top bottles with the lids removed, rinsed, drained and crushed; rinsed, clear, brown or green glass containers; and any type of metal food or beverage cans, rinsed, labels removed and crushed, if possible.
