Steve Strickler told Allen County Commissioners on Tuesday morning that he has received a much better response than he anticipated for his recycling project.
I just want to thank you guys for the investment in the dumpsters. They filled up rather quickly. In fact we have two semi trailers filled with cardboard and we are trying to figure out what we are going to do with it all, Strickler said. We do need a baler. If things were going well in the dairy business, I would purchase one myself.
Strickler said a cardboard baier would cost anywhere from $5,000 to $10,000.
