It may be the most popular Ripple Glass Recycling bin in the metro. But since construction on Corinth Square began earlier this year, it hasn’t been able to find a permanent home.
Prairie Village will be bringing the Ripple Bin most recently located behind the Mission Road Antique Mall onto municipal property near 77th Street and Mission Road on July 5.
The move comes after persistent complaints from the residents of the apartment complex across the parking lot about noise generated by the bin.
“We get at least a call pretty much every day,” said Assistant City Administrator Dennis Enslinger.
The bin was moved from its original home in the Tippin’s Restaurant parking lot when demolition of the building began to make way for the CVS currently under construction. LANE4, the property owner, put it behind the Hattie’s Coffee building at Corinth Square briefly before noise complaints prompted its relocation behind the Mission Road Antique Mall in February.
Enslinger said they hoped the move to city property would be temporary, and the bin would be returned to Corinth property once CVS is complete.
