It opened with little fanfare, but Mother Earth is saying thank you.
Green Tech Recycling opened for business Monday in South Bend.
The new state-of-the-art facility recycles construction debris and other waste, so that it doesn't end up in the landfill.
And that is good news for at least one local company.
Not only are they recycling, but they’re also saving gas money at the same time.
"Having this facility here when we do our pickups on the south side of town, it's much more convenient, and we also like the fact that most of what we can pick up can be recycled and reused,” said Larry Pitcher of Double Lap Inc. “We're excited about the possibilities."
If you have materials you need to drop off, the Green Tech Recycling center is located on Ewing.
It is open Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., and on Saturdays from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
