County officials say recycling efforts need to improve

    COUNTY – Shelby County officials are reminding residents that the recycling bin in the former Shopko parking lot is for rural residents’ recyclables only, and if people continue to drop off trash that has to be hauled away, the recycling location may be closed.
    In-town Harlan residents have their yellow bins to put out on trash day with their recyclables inside.
