From the City of West University:

This notice is to inform all residents that the Westpark Recycling Center is no longer accepting any type of materials (i.e. recycling and other material) from West University Place residents.  With the continuing rising costs for the processing and disposal of recyclables, this has resulted in drastic changes in recycling programs nationwide.  City staff will be working with the Recycling and Solid Waste Reduction Board on finding suitable alternates in close proximity to West U for the disposal of items that were accepted at the Westpark Recycling Center.
