The fate of a 26-year recycling program overseen by the Iola Rotary Club is in doubt.

Rotary President Alana Kinzle announced last week the recycling program has “exceeded our club’s capability” and will end in December.

Rotary will make its last pick-ups Dec. 18. Members are eager to find another organization, club or entity willing to continue the project.
