No Throwaways

Written by 

out maconprideThe recycling group Macon Pride congratulated three local organizations who at lunch or dinner meetings bring and take home their own setups, thereby creating very little or no trash. 

The groups include the Smoky Mountain Quilters Guild, the Nantahala Hiking Club (pictured above) and the Franklin Garden Club. Macon Pride is a volunteer organization that helps Macon County Solid Waste Department get out the word that reuse and recycling is good citizenship and saves tax dollars. To schedule a program on how to set up a recycling station in your business or home or to report your group or business as part of the recycling program call Shirley Ches at 828.524.9991 or Elena Marsh at 828.369.8915.
