That Warm & Fuzzy “Earth Day” Feeling

When I visited Chicago recently, I looked around at all the ìElî stations and other public places, remarking about how easy the city made it to recycle. There were sizable public recycling bins everywhere, allowing anyone on the street to help the environment in small ways that add up.

Well, Iím proud to say that S-P Recycling Corporation, the American Plastics Council, and Novelis Incorporated are teaming up to provide large recycling bins to DeKalb, Fulton, Clayton, Douglas, Gwinnett, Hall, and Butts counties (manÖI canít believe we have a county with that name :-P ).

You will be able to find these recycling bins in the parking lots of schools, sports fields, retail centers, and grocery stores. Weíll be able to recycle newspapers, as well as aluminum and plastic containers. Now if theyíd just put out more bins for the 5 million phone books I consistently have (no matter how many I get rid of)Ö

I know this post isnít as exciting as some other things that may be going on around town, but I always get psyched when I see our city stepping up to the plate in any way when it comes to ìsavingî the planet.

Visit the Novelis link to learn about recycling challenges for Atlanta and about sustainability in general.

    To add to the humor of Butts County, the largest realty firm their is owned by a guy named, wait for it, Ben Dover. Dover Realty is the best real estate company their but the name cracks me up every time I go their on a work related trip.
