Bryan's recycling center closed on Sunday. Now what?

BRYAN, Tex. (KBTX)- Bryan residents looking for a place to recycle their goods will have to find other options following Sunday's closure of the drive-thru recycling center on Briarcrest Drive.

The one-stop spot for residents to drop off their recyclable materials closed after Walmart said it needed the space to add additional businesses to the property.

The company had been providing the space to the city of Bryan free of charge for many years, but Walmart now wants to develop that area into new restaurants.

Moving forward, residents are encouraged to contract with private companies, permitted by the city, to handle most common recyclable materials.
