The recycling bins at th Kluthe Center are no longer available for use. Dustin Heuerman, the Interim Director for the Kluthe Center, stated that over several years the maintenance of the recycling bins has been financially supported by many organizations. However now only Lake Land College is supporting the bins. The college is working with Effingham to find a suitable replacement. The public can still use the free Recycling Center on the Lake Land College campus in Mattoon.
