A new recycling group asked the county for help transporting items to an outside facility.

Commissioners said they wanted to think about the request for a week.

Allen County Recycling Inc. recently applied for 501(c)3 non-profit status and appointed a board of directors. The group attended Tuesday’s commission meeting with Alan Weber, a former county counselor, as its spokesperson.
