MULLINS, S.C. – Mullins city officials announced plans last week to close a recycling center behind the Mullins Fire Station on East Front Street. The area will permanently close April 30, City Administrator David Hudspeth said. “It’s really not suitable for the public, becauseit’s an unmanned site,” he said. “The problem has been that people think we recycle everything or are turning it into a city dump, putting a lot of things in the cans and on the ground that are simply not recyclable.” Hudspeth said the problem is materials that make it difficult to sort out what could be recycled. “We do have manned sites throughout the county, and the Marion County Recycling Center located at 2631 Senator Gasque Road for citizens to use for that purpose,” he said.
