Recycling Firm In Gary, Indiana Closed For Non-Compliance

A recycling business operating on Gary's West Side had its privileges revoked last week when Gary city officials shut down the business for not being in compliance with city ordinances.

The business was discovered to be operating without a general business license. The owners were originally denied an opportunity to apply for a business license because the location, a residential neighborhood, is not zoned for a recycling type business. In addition to operating without a business license, the recycling business was also violating the city's zoning ordinance.
