MIDLAND - Midland will soon have a one stop shop to drop off your recyclables and yard waste.

The city gave thumbs up to creating a citizen's collection center.

The center will be located one block north of the intersection of Smith Road and Veterans Airpark Lane in Midland.

The site was originally intended for 24 hour collecting of tree branches and other brush debris but over time it quickly turned into a dump site for garbage.

The city intends to clean the site up then they'll organize it to take yard waste, cardboard, aluminum and large items.

It will also be manned and it will only be open certain hours.

Midland Solid Waste officials will be taking bids from contractors to construct the new center.

The current site will close on April 1.
