A lot of people are still hurt and saddened by being lied to years ago
when the recycling was going to the landfill (we are among those)...but we
promise you, we have done the research and please help us pass the good
news...GLYNN COUNTY IS RECYCLING! Hooray! Hear it: GLYNN COUNTY IS
We also have GREAT NEWS for everyone who wants to recycle all of your film
plastics! Film plastics are all your thin plastics like bread bags, dry
cleaner bags, newspaper bags, ziplock bags, shrink wrap, bubble wrap, etc.
You can bring them to Harris Teeter and put them with your grocery store
bags. Harris Teeter sells to a company called TREX that makes it into
decking materials such as boardwalks and benches. We encourage everyone to
use their own bags for grocery shopping, but it is wonderful to know where
to bring all our film plastic in Glynn County. We are encouraging the
other local grocery stores to do the same. We will let you know....
THIS IS SO COOL:
We just got word that there was a record breaking month of recycling bin
requests! 150 new accounts in Glynn Co. in one month! That is the
biggest increase in recycling interest since the program has begun. I
know.... We cried....Jen considered dancing on the table.
We are thrilled that the word and emails have been passed around and
people are calling and making it happen. Hats off to those of you who are
recycling and those of you who called for a bin. Yahoo!
If you still need a bin for curbside recycling or know someone that needs
one, please call or have them call the county at 554-7111. Remember, you
are already paying for it in your taxes!
So call 554-7111 or register online:
Too easy. Do it now.

NOTE: you can put your junk mail, magazines and newspaper in grocery bags,

brought to our attention.
We are excited about the things we have been learning as we research
creative ways to have an award winning recycling program for our
community. Our goals remain clear: the opportunity for curbside pick up
for the county and city, recycling everything we can, including glass and
tin, and educating the public on the GOOD NEWS! We will keep you posted.
As always, PASS THE WORD! Amazing things are happening because of the
support of people like YOU! Let's keep making a difference. Pass on the
good news, pass on the good news, pass on the good news.....
We have been researching ways to add to the list above. We hope to have
great news for you soon, including bins for offices, stores, and public
places. We have BIG dreams. We think the amazing amounts of calls for bins
has everyone feeling that we want to have a greener Glynn! LOVE IT!
