The Keep Georgia Beautiful Foundation recently awarded a “How to Reconsider Litter and Recycle Right” Community Grant in the amount of $1,500 to the Keep Oconee County Beautiful Commission (KOCBC).
The grant will provide funding for KOCBC to educate the Oconee County community on the harmful impact of litter and recycling contamination and to provide information on proper recycling methods through customized handouts.
“So many people want to do the right thing by recycling,” said Keep Oconee County Beautiful Executive Director Cindy Pritchard, “but they may be unsure of which items can be recycled, or they may not know that items for recycling need to be clean. Providing information on how to recycle correctly at county recycling/waste convenience centers in an easy to reference form will be a huge benefit.”
Recycling/Waste Convenience Center Locations:
· Greensboro Highway (SR15) - 2001 Greensboro Highway at Green Ferry Road
· Jimmy Daniell Road - Jimmy Daniell Road near SR 316
· Hog Mountain Road (SR53) - Hog Mountain Road at Carrithers School Road
· Rankin Road - Across from Oconee County Middle School just off Mars Hill Road
· Hwy 441 - One mile south of Farmington on US 441 (Macon Hwy)
