Opinion Letters Businesses commended for recycling efforts

Macon Pride would like to announce that more Franklin businesses, organizations, clubs and churches have been rewarded with a Proud to Recycle Here sticker for their superior recycling, repurposing or reusing methods at their facility. With some guidance from Macon Pride members and Joel Ostroff, Macon County Recycling Coordinator, more and more of what most people consider trash to be thrown into the landfill is now put in the recycling bins at the county’s recycling and convenience centers. Recycling makes money for the county which keeps our taxes low and our landfills not full.

Macon Pride’s purpose is to foster the Macon County Recycling Program and to educate the public on the litter laws and encourage voluntary compliance.

The following names have been added to the long list of businesses, organizations and clubs that have earned our sticker -- Bear Mountain Outfitters, Outdoor 76, Franklin Gem and Mineral Museum, Rathskeller, Rose Creek Mine, The Bikery, The Filling Station Thrift Store, The Pet Shop, Wells Fargo Bank, Green T, Franklin Chamber of Commerce and Macon County Historical Society Museum.

If your group wishes to know more about recycling or what can be done to furtheryour recycling efforts, please contact Elena Marsh 369-8915 or Shirley Ches 524-9991.
