Cleveland County recycle center moves to Westwood Recreation Complex

NORMAN — The Cleveland County Recycle Drop-off Center has relocated to the Westwood Recreation Complex due to major renovations at the Cleveland County Fairgrounds.

Norman recyclers can find the new facility at 2430 Westport Drive, just west of the tennis courts.

Residents can now drop off their recycling at any of Norman’s three recycle centers:

• Westwood Recycle Center, 2430 Westport Drive.

• Fire Station No. 9 Recycle Center, 3001 E Alameda St.

• Hollywood Shopping Center Recycle Center, McGee Drive and Lindsey Street.

All recycle centers are now accepting glass in addition to aluminum, steel and tin cans, corrugated cardboard, newspaper, and plastics No. 1 and No. 2. Small diameter tree trimmings, grass, leaves and garden waste is accepted at the Compost Facility at 398 Bratcher/Miner Road during its regular business hours.

The Norman Sanitation Division also anticipates the completion of a fourth recycle facility at the Norman Transfer Station in mid-November. The drop-off center, 3901 S Chautauqua, will serve as the main hub for all three drop-off centers and accept scrap steel, used tires and clean lumber in addition to the regular recyclable items.

Hillsborough County reopens recreation centers with safety protocols

TAMPA, Fla. — Hillsborough County residents now have another option available to stay active.

Hillsborough County closed more than a dozen of its recreation centers in late March because of coronavirus concerns.

On Monday, staffed recreation centers reopened. Before you head over to use the free services at the rec center, there are some new safety protocols you need to know. All staff and rec center users will have their temperature taken and a face covering is required.

“If they are participating in exercise, they can take it off while participating in exercise, but while they’re waiting on the bench, or between different sessions, they would need to have a mask on,” explained Adrienne Rouse, Manager of Recreation Services.

The rec center offers several classes like Zuba, volleyball lessons and other activities that promote health. They will have classes at 50% capacity to maintain social distancing.

“Groups will be maintained to 10 or less and groups won’t merge with other groups so that we can maintain minimal contact,” Rouse said.

The decision to reopen was made after consulting with health officials, emergency managers and recreation staff.
