Campaign signs recycled into picnic tables

Posted: Updated:
Want to support your a candidate without supporting waste? Residents of Winneshiek county have the chance to recycle their campaign signs after the election.

This service will be offered by the Winneshiek County Recycling Department.

A container for the signs will be placed in the drop-off facility at the Winneshiek County Recycling Center located at 2510 172nd Avenue in the Freeport Industrial Park at 6:00 a.m. on Wednesday Nov. 5.

Campaign signs are not accepted until the day after the election as they are considered to be an active part of the election process until the election is over.

The signs will eventually end up at a plastic manufacturer and become park benches and picnic tables.
