Breaking News!!: Needles, CA: Camdan Recycling is closing their business.
ZachNews has learned that Camdan Recycling, located at 409 East Broadway in Needles, California, is closing their business.
A source tells ZachNews that the owner of Camdan Recycling announced the closing to a group of people at the B.P.O. Elks Lodge 1608 in Needles, California over the weekend.
The source tells ZachNews that people at that gathering were told that the closure was due to regulations in California, but ZachNews has learned that the closure may have to do with the State of California owing Camdan Recycling between $50,000.00 and $60,000.00 which the State of California is refusing to pay them.
City of Needles Vice Mayor Jeff Williams confirms the closure to ZachNews and posted on his Facebook Page, Needles City Council Member Shawn Gudmundson wrote, “I just found out late last night and have informed city staff to look at all of our options to help our resident with their recycling needs.”
ZachNews has learned that Camdan Recycling is closing before the end of 2015, on Wednesday, December 23rd, 2015, because Camdan Recycling can no longer afford to stay open.
Many people from the community use Camdan Recycling to drop off their cans and bottles they recycled for some extra needed cash.
That extra money helped people who are living from paycheck to paycheck; if for purchase that gallon of milk, loaf of bread, or pay for gasoline, that extra money was a big help to people who need to get by.
People who go to Camdan Recycling will have to go elsewhere to drop off their cans and bottles, but that’s if they have transportation as some of the people who go to Camdan Recycling walk with their bag of recycled cans and bottles.
People with transportation will have to go to a place that will accept the can and bottles from California.
Camdan Recycling has been involved in many events in our community, including the 5th Annual Route 66 Hot Boat and Custom Car Show and Golf Tournament.
A sad and depressing lost to the community just before the Christmas holiday.
