YOUNG TOWNSHIP — The Young Township Board of Supervisors held its monthly voting meeting Wednesday.

At the meeting, supervisors decided to take action to help the Jefferson County Solid Waste Authority.

Board Chairman Andrew R. Meterko spoke of the committee's efforts.

"We hate to see the recycling bins leave; our’s is used frequently by the borough, so we want to do our part," he said.

To prevent recycling centers from closing and to help defray costs in the area, Young Township will give $1,200 twice at year.

Additionally, anyone can donate to the cause. For more information, one can contact the Jefferson County Solid Waste Authority. Without help, sites will inevitably close, the board said.

In addition to recycling trash, the Young Township Supervisors discussed an upcoming drug recycling inititive. Anyone with unused or expired medication may dispose of it on Saturday, Sept. 29 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Jefferson County drop-off locations include:

• Jefferson County Courthouse — 200 Main St., Brookville
• Brockway Drug — 135 Main St., Brockway
• McCabe's Drug — 419 Main St., Reynoldsville
• Lindsey Fire Hall — 1010 W. Mahoning St., Punxsutawney.
