Macon enviro group applauds local recyclers

Written by 

Macon Pride, a county-based environmental organization, has recognized Caterpillar Precision Seals in Franklin for what it deems an exemplary recycling program. On a regular basis, Macon Pride highlights a local recycling program. The extensiveness and organization of the one at Caterpillar landed the company the honor this time around.

Caterpillar recycles large volumes of paper, metals and lubricants; its plant also has nearly a dozen stations for employees to recycle beverage containers and paper used daily.  

“We strive for 100 percent recycling at our facility,” said Curtis Green, the facility’s senior associate for environmental health and safety.

Macon Pride also wants to hear from other county businesses, clubs, classrooms and churches that have recycling programs to recognize the effort. And, if an organization is lacking a program, Macon Pride will facilitate implementing a no-cost recycling station on site.
