New recycling fee goes into effect Saturday

Bartholomew County residents still have a few days left get rid of old computer monitors and TV sets for free at the  Columbus/Bartholomew County Recycling Center or the Bartholomew County Landfill.

Starting on Saturday, July 1st, the Bartholomew County Solid Waste Management District will begin charging a $20 recycling fee for those items. But until then, they can be disposed of for free.
