Officials are touting a new solid waste district in Tippecanoe County as a success.
The district board reports more than 35,000-pounds have been collected since operations started in March.
That is almost as much as the Wildcat Creek Solid Waste District collected in all of last year and in 2010.
Tippecanoe partnered with Clinton County to run Wildcat for 20-years, but that ended earlier this year.
Rick Parsons runs the new district. He says it’s operating as expected, which benefits all residents.
