Keep Pickens Beautiful has given out their first recycling award to the Pickens County Library. The library is a charter member of our program and has consistently high numbers of recycling every month. Between April 2010 and December 2010 the total numbers of bags of recycling (plastic bottles and aluminum cans) was over 258. The library also recycles paper, books and magazines.
In that same time period, almost 1,000 30-gallon bags of bottles and cans have been recycled by our partner businesses who participate in our program. For a break down of the business names and numbers visit our Web page at www.keeppickensbeautiful.org.
L-R: Debbie Robinson, Beth Baughman, Donna Harrington, Olivia Hattan-Edwards and Sharon Harp.
