Changes Come to the Two Harbors Recycling Center

Beginning March 29th, the Two Harbors Recycling Cen­ter will be undergoing some changes. (see advertisement on page 2)

The new hours at the recy­cling center will be Monday to Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Outside drop-off will be available Mon­day to Thursday. Recycling now will only need to be sort­ed into three categories: glass, cardboard, and an “everything else” category for paper, cans, and plastics #1 and #2.

During open hours, the Recy­cling Center will accept clean and dry mattresses ($18), res­idential appliances ($10), elec­tronics ($0.25 a pound), and tires (ranging from $4-$35).

Lake County Developmental Achievement Center (DAC) will no longer be working with the recycling center on the aluminum exchange program. Due to this change, they will no longer be exchanging alu­minum or emptying the trailers at Bethlehem Lutheran Church and the Two Harbors Federal Credit Union.

Due to an expansion process, also starting on March 29, the Landfill will only accept brush and yard waste.

Earth Day (April 22) is only a month away, and implementing the practice of recycling and disposing of unusable goods in a responsible way can be a great way toward being good stewards.

Hello! My name is Haley Searls. I’ve loved writing from an early age, though my nonfiction writing at five years old consisted mainly of weather and gardening reports. I still have some of those early articles: “It’s sunny.” “It’s still sunny.” “It’s raining.” I’m glad to say my writing has improved since then. I wrote a guest post for the Silver Bay Public Library blog, and was the writer/editor of the newsletter for my American Heritage Girls troop. I have been writing for the North Shore Journal since June 2022. Besides writing, I love reading, drawing, photography, music, and spending time with family and friends. Two books that have really influenced my writing are Reforming Journalism by Marvin Olasky and Writer to Writer by Bodie and Brock Thoene. As a journalist, I want to share positive community interactions and inspire people to make lasting connections. Article topics that interest me are ones which show community activities and involvement. Such articles include community events, youth accomplishments, library programming, small businesses, local history, local artists and authors, art programs, and cultural events such as theater and dance. If you have an article idea, email the North Shore Journal with my name in the subject line! I look forward to hearing from you!
