Recyclying is Good When Correctly Done

I received a reminder from the automatic, fantasticmatic, awesomematic notification system the city offers to those who sign up for it… the email notification system to let us know when announcement are made.  Directly from the city:

La Vergne accepts paper for recycling

Just a quick note to remind La Vergne residents that the city accepts paper products such as scrap paper, junk mail, phone books, shredded paper, magazines, non-corragated boxes and more at their locations at City Hall and the Library.

Please don’t throw garbage into these bins. SP Recycling takes the products and recycles them.

“Rather than throwing away junk mail, paper and the like, we ask that the citizens help recycle them,” said City of La Vergne Marketing and Program Coordiantor Angie Mayes. “There is a big problem in town with the number of phone books we receive each year. Rather than throwing them away (which will go to the almost-full landfill), we ask that people take them to our recycling bins to dispose of them.”

For more information, contact Mayes at 287-8690.

So kudos for recycling done correctly.

Jeers, however, to those who don’t do it correctly.  WSMV reported last night that a company on Nu View Drive was operating without a business license in an area zoned I-1 (or no outside trash).  Here’s more from Channel 4,

“My main concern is they will close up and leave this mess behind; that’s my biggest concern, other than that it’s a little unsightly,” said neighbor Joe Eccles.

The glass has started to spill over onto the property next door. Neighbors were concerned Monday that there could be some type of hazardous material spewing into the neighborhood. That’s why the Rutherford County Emergency Management Agency was called to the scene.

Unsightly indeed.
