Bundles of papers wait to be recycled at Peerless Products, which has announced it needs the space and the Rotary’s recycling effort likely will end. A meeting is scheduled for tonight at 6 o’clock at First Presbyterian Church to discuss options, and if anyone is willing to take over the effort.

Iola Rotarians have successfully kept tons of recyclable materials out of the Allen County Landfill over the past 26 years.

The effort — which started solely with paper, but eventually expanded to include cardboard, plastic, glass and metal — continued to grow as outlets to take materials were identified.

But with that expansion came additional need for helpers — all of them volunteers.
