Morehead Community Recycling Center temporarily closed

Editor's Note: The following message provided by the Morehead Community Recycling Center

Dear Community,

I must unfortunately inform you that your Morehead Community Recycling Center is temporarily suspending all business as of 4:00pm on Thursday, March 26, 2020.

This decision is in light of the Coronavirus pandemic, and the recent executive order from Governor Beshear stating that all non-life sustaining operations are required to be closed by 8:00pm on March 26, 2020.

We will remain closed until we receive further recommendations from the state and/or federal government lifting this order.

We regret that our customers must either store their recyclables waste or dispose of it until further notice moving forward.

This temporary closure includes the closing of the 24/7 drop-off drive through facility, as well as our Business and Residential Curbside pick-up services. Our community trailers and inside operation at the Center had already been suspended prior to this new executive order from our Governor.

The Covid-19 pandemic is an evolving situation and we want to assure our community that the health and safety of our employees and volunteers is the highest priority as well as helping to flatten the curve regarding the spreading of this virus.

Your Morehead Community Recycling Center is a small, non-profit organization and, like many others, we are facing tough times. However, we will get through this together as a community and as a great nation.

Please follow our Morehead Community Recycling Center Facebook page and our website at: http://moreheadrecycling.org for updates.

Thank you for your support. We look forward to seeing you again, soon.


Gardner May, Manager
