So says Swamplot. Multiple emails to a couple of Heights neighorhood mailing lists sounded the alarm as well. This has been a long time coming. Originally, it was supposed to have been closed at the end of 2012, but I guess that extension got extended. With the planned expansion of single stream recycling, locations like Center Street are increasingly redundant, though for folks like some of my panic-stricken neighbors who don’t have their 96-gallon recycling bins yet, there’s still a gap in the short term. And with the continued demand for real estate in this part of town, it’s hard to claim that the highest and best use for that property was a recycling dropoff site. Those of you that are still waiting for the wheely bins, I feel your pain, but you can still lug your glass to Westpark, where at least there will be workers to haul it out of your car for you. I look forward to seeing what becomes of this site. There are still a lot of other warehouse/industrial properties along Center Street between Heights Boulevard and Houston Avenue, with some townhomes mixed in between. This could be the start of a wave.
