Currently the only sign advertising Kandiyohi County’s recycling center is a black and white placard that’s about 18 inches high attached to a post in the boulevard opposite Bill Taunton Stadium on the city’s southwest side. Tribune photo by Carolyn Lange

"We Recycle": Energizing Kandiyohi County, Minn., recycling program


WILLMAR — Being located right across the street from the Bill Taunton Stadium where the popular Willmar Stingers play baseball should serve as a neon sign directing people to your front door.

Yet Jay Baker said he gets "so many calls" every week from people asking where the county's recycling facility is located.

Those callers all say they know where the Stingers play ball but claim to have never seen the large brown recycling center that's on the other side of the road.
