Hillsboro recycling reopens Tuesday

The Metro Public Works drop-off recycling site at Hillsboro High School will be closed today so repairs can be made to the parking lot.

A water source beneath the surface of the parking lot, combined with the weight of the recycling bins and the collection trucks, has weakened a section of the asphalt, causing it to break up and form a hole in the parking lot. Metro crews plan to repair the hole and to fix the problem so that this does not occur again.

The site is behind the high school on Hillmont Drive, between Richard Jones Road and Glen Echo Road. It is scheduled to reopen Tuesday.

Normal hours of operation are 8 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday through Saturday; 1
