I appreciate your interest and concern over the current issue with recycling. The BoCC had very little notice of the Levy Forestry Camp being closed by the State of Florida which was our source of inmate labor for both the landfill and road department. We have been assured we will resume being provided inmate workforces from Lowell Correctional in Marion County very shortly.
The BoCC does promote recycling and will continue to do so. Mr. Rod Hastings at our landfill heads up our recycling department and makes presentations to various organizations including our schools. You may reach him at 352-486-3300 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Again thank you for sharing your concerns and we hope to be back to normal very shortly by returning our recycling trailers around the county and assisting Waste Pro and the municipalities with their recycling programs as in the past.
Please feel free to call me with any questiones or concerns.
