The City of Killeen is ending its curbside recycling program on Friday, September 30.

City Director of Public Information Hilary Shine made the announcement Monday, and said the City is not currently accepting new customers for the service. Shine said the City Council elected to end the service because it cost more than it made back, and savings could be realized were it discontinued.

Shine said Killeen residents can still take recyclable goods to the Killeen Recycling Center at 111 E. Avenue F. The center accepts #1 and #2 plastics, all types of paper, cardboard, steel, tin and aluminum cans, clear, green, and brown glass bottles and jars, cell phones, and rechargeable batteries.

The center also accepts automotive and cooking oil.
