    Hardin County's recycling trailer in Stephensburg may have vanished, but it is not a permanent disappearing act.

    The trailer — once at the corner of U.S. 62 and Eastview Road — was forced to relocate once the landowner sold the property, said Bob Hall, county solid waste coordinator.

    The previous owner allowed the county to place the trailer there because he was not using the corner, Hall continued, but the new owner has identified a use for the property.
