GRANBY — The Granby City Council opted to extend the hours at the Granby Recycling Center for Saturdays.
The decision was made during Tuesday night's council meeting.
"It was supposed to be [extended] anyway, but with the wintertime, nobody was out there," Granby City Clerk Paula Carsel said. "Summertime, people are coming back in, so we don't have enough hours out there to collect recyclables."
The hours on Saturday will be from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., and the center will be closed at noon for lunch. The center is also open on Tuesdays as well, with the same hours as Saturday.
The center is open to Granby residents and those who live outside of the city limits. It is free of charge for their use.
"They accept tin cans, aluminum cans, plastic, newspaper, magazines, office paper and mixed paper," she said. "We do have a metal Dumpster out there that they can put their metal in."
The city clerk noted they would not take old mattresses and things of that nature. The recycling center is not a dumpsite.
In other news, the council approved a request from the Granby House to have a cruise night, starting at 7 p.m. Saturday, in front of the facility.
