Branson has made a move toward becoming a greener city. The town has added 18 new recycle bins to its downtown as part of the Historic Downtown Improvement Project.
Branson Mayor Karen Best says many visitors come to the town from cities where recycling is the norm. She says they want to make recycling easy during their visit, too.
The bins are located next to trash bins at several downtown intersections and in Liberty Plaza, so visitors can choose either landfill or recycle.
The city says additional bins will be added in Phase 4 of the renovations.
The City of Branson has offered recycling since 1992. Two recycling options are available 24/7 these locations: 550 Compton Road and at the United Methodist Church, 2208 West Highway 76.
A full service recycle center is available at 550 Compton Road and is staffed 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Saturday. All recycle facilities accept cardboard, cans, paper, glass and plastics.
