POTTSVILLE — The Rubbermaid plant in Pottsville allowed its workers to go home early Wednesday after managers told them the plant was closing next year.

The factory on West Laurel Boulevard makes metal trash cans.

The company is consolidating operations with another plant in northern Virginia.

About 100 people will lose their jobs in Pottsville by September of 2015.
