In our continuing series Ask BossierNow, readers are looking for answers:

Why do they…?
What are they building…?
Why hasn’t Bossier ever…?
Why don’t we have…?
How can they…?

More than a few area residents are wondering about this one, submitted by Angie, a Benton resident.

Can you tell me why the recycling center by the courthouse in Benton closed? Is there another place in Benton/North Bossier for recycling?

We asked Doug Rimmer, Police Jury President and Wanda Bennett, juror for District 3, which includes Benton, for an answer. Bennett responded to our inquiry.

“The company that was doing it, no longer does it,” Bennett said in an email. “We have not found anyone that does.”

The only remaining municipal recycling center we are aware of is operated by City of Bossier City at 3001 Old Shed Road, between Hwy. 80 and Shed Road. It is accessible from Crowing Lane and Tinsley Boulevard and from the Old Minden Road extension.

It is accessible 24 hours per day, with drop-off bins located under a covered drive-through.
