FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) — Starting next month, Allen County residents will no longer be able to recycle at Sam’s Club.

The Allen County Department of Environmental Management says the Community Recycling Drop-off Site located at 6736 Lima Rd. will need to relocate due to a decision made by the corporate division of Sam’s Club.
