It looks like winter is finally here and so is the Superbowl! As you plan your Superbowl party, don’t forget to make plans to recycle your clean food containers (#1 and #2 plastics) and aluminum beverage cans.
2020 is underway and we have a lot of new ideas and programs starting this year. One of the new programs is a grant for Richland County Schools. This grant ($500) will be awarded to two schools that bring awareness or have programs that involve “Reduce, Reuse, or Recycle.” The Solid Waste Authority will also have a new program and contests set up at the Richland County Fair so be sure to look for that in coming months.
As Director, I want to involve the Schools in Richland County in our recycling efforts. Schools like Shelby Middle School led by Mrs. Rowlands have a great recycling program going on and the effort her and the kids put into that program is phenomenal. On behalf of the Board of Trustees for the Solid Waste Authority I want to thank Mrs. Rowlands and her kids (Eco-Whippets) for their hard work. Shelby Middle School’s program is a role model for other schools. The school will be holding an electronics drive in a couple months so look for that to come as we will post it on our website and Facebook page.
Until Next Time,
