Group getting the word out on recycling

Written by 

out recyclingThe Macon County Public Library was recently recognized as a community leader in recycling.

 

Environmental group Macon Pride gave the library the recognition as an upstanding recycler in acclaim of its “complete” recycling program throughout the building. The library has recycling stations in every room, containers by each desk and in the kitchen for community meetings and staff lunches. The library staff also sends magazines and books to Friends of the Library for re-use and sponsors many programs, especially for children, in “up-cycling,” which is the art of reusing potential throwaways to create new items.

“Our goal is to make it as convenient as possible for our staff and visitors to recycle,” said Librarian Karen Wallace.  “Our patrons deserve As for helping the library, community and county in this worthwhile effort.”

Macon Pride has also honored exemplary recycling programs such as Caterpillar, Goshen Timber Frames, Collectiques, Tony Angel Media, Life’s Bounty Bakery and Café, Rosebud Cottage, Roomful of Nuts, Mountain Valley Health Foods, Edward Jones Highlands Road, Great Smoky Mountains Fish Camp, UU Fellowship, and H&R Block.

Harper, with her million-dollar smile and swagger, immediately made me feel at home.
