Thank you for recycling, Madison!
To the Editor:
Madison celebrated Earth Day with it’s fourth annual Community Shred.
This was made possible by volunteers, community donations, municipal cooperation and almost no tax dollars! Cintas Document Management shredded a truckload of personal documents, donating their secure professional services to the community once again. We thank the city for promotion and excellent location and event organization by Colleen Hall. Sheriff Markely made it possible for folks to dispose of prescription pills that they no longer needed in an environmentally optimal way. Harvest of the Heart served the public by carrying items to be recycled from cars to our collection and shred areas. Lynn Beckham won the hand crafted bluebird house prize, but all of those that donated cans for the hungry are sincerely thanked on behalf of Harvest for the Heart. And again this year, Morgan County picked up a trailer full of hard to recycle items after the event- making it convenient for the public to recycle and dispose of things that should not be put in a landfill. Keep Morgan Beautiful took the opportunity to talk to those who were interested in composting, recycling and sustainable living.
Thanks go out to everyone who participated, and for doing your best to Keep Morgan Beautiful this Earth Day.
