Dubois County is expanding the Ferdinand recycling and trash site due to traffic increase.

Cars have had to wait in line at the site located on Ferdinand Road Northwest to recycle or throw their trash away.

County Highway Superintendent, Steve Berg, brought the issue to light in front of the Dubois County Commissioners last week.

St. Anthony Road west is currently being worked on, and the dirt for the road must be removed and replaced.

According to Berg, some of that dirt will be used to extend the Ferdinand recycling site further south.

A trash compactor will soon be added to the site and former trash boxes will be used for collecting recyclables.

Once this happens, some of the trash bins will be used as recycling bins.

A few will be kept and used for trash once the compactor gets filled, according to Berg.

Officials say their goal is to have this completed within the next few months.
