Letterkenny plans closings
CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - Public recycling at Letterkenny Army Depot will end May 10 and golf could face a similar fate by the end of the year as a result of the continuing downsizing of the depot.
The borough of Chambersburg, St. Thomas Township, depot employees and members of the public have been bringing cans, bottles and other recyclable materials to the depot for years. Lisa Byers, real estate coordinator for the Letterkenny Industrial Development Authority, said Monday that's one of several activities the Army will cut back on in the next year.
"The depot will still recycle internally," depot spokesman Alan Loessy said. The cutbacks in depot operations and personnel make it impractical to keep accepting materials from the public.
