Pulaski celebrates countywide recycling project

(Continued)

Somerset —

Bullock said that the new program would be “of great benefit” to local citizens.
“From an economic standpoint, curbside recycling has already created four new jobs at Waste Connections,” said Bullock. “My hope is that the program generates enough volume for that number of jobs to increase, both at Waste Connections and at the Solid Waste and Recycling Center. I want to thank everyone, in advance, for participating and helping to reduce waste in our county.”

Hines said there hasn’t been an environmental study done yet to show what can of impact keeping this extra trash out of landfills would have on Pulaski County, but he’s absolutely certain the program would have a positive effect.
“I’ve worked in this field for 20 years,” he said. “I’ve seen litter and trash on the road side and the hollers, and I’ve seen that change over time. This is just another step to educate people to do the right thing with their waste.”
