Marysville and its surrounding areas in Marshall County recently lost the curbside recycling service provided byTemps Disposal. The trash hauler simply couldn’t sustain it financially, with markets growing scarce. No one should expect a business to take recyclables at a loss.

Fortunately Marshall County still has its recycling program, which relies on volunteers to collect items once a month at towns around the county. Marysville’s recycling day, for example, is only on the second Saturday from 10 to 11 a.m. near Hedstrom Hall.
