FLINT, Mich. (AP) - Officials say they’ve removed nearly 600 tons of garbage during the past month from the site of a former recycling center in Flint.

Genesee County Land Bank Executive Director Doug Weiland tells The Flint Journal (https://bit.ly/1Rlx81F ) work is wrapping up at the former CBC Recycling site south of downtown.

Weiland says his office teamed up with city’s blight elimination department to remove mounds of debris left over after previous owners walked away from the business. The property was turned over to the county land bank after foreclosure on back taxes.

The trash, mainly items that were once considered recyclables but degraded into unusable litter over time, were removed as part of the cleanup. More than $90,000 in grant funding was used to demolish the building at the site in September.
