The construction of the new Starke County Solid Waste Building is nearly done.
The building is being constructed on the northwest portion of the Starke County Highway Department property at 3835 E. 250 N. in Knox. It will be the site of a single recycling drop-off location that will be gated and secured. All material collection will be under supervision by all district personnel.
All of the recycling bins from locations around the county due to contamination.
Tim Miller from Royal Star Builders told the commissioners Monday night that the septic system needs to be hooked up to get everything wrapped up. The air conditioning unit is at the building, but the lines aren’t hooked up. The Freon lines will be charged when the weather warms up.
The gates were anticipated to be done this week.
