Permanent Recycling has come to Paint Lick

Now There is No Excuse!

On September 29th, we had a special dedication of the permanent recycling center in Paint Lick. I had hopes that someone who was actually present and had some pictures would write this, but alas, no one has come forward.

The center is located beside the Fire Station-very easy to access- I went by this morning to deposit my bag of plastics. We are thankful to the folks at First Southern National Bank for allowing the temporary placement of the recycling containers beside the bank. But the permanent location will now serve everyone with larger bens and easy access.

At Friends of Paint Lick we are all about recycling and we celebrate with the community this latest effort to keep Garrard County beautiful. Please participate in recycling your glass, cans, paper, and plastics.  Our environment is a sacred trust that we have received from previous generations, and one day we must pass on the treasure.recycling

For more information on the recycling effort, be sure to visit the Beautify Garrard County site. Karla Sefcak and her team are doing a tremendous job in getting us all informed and involved in doing what we can.

Thanks to all for the festivities including the Sportsman”s Club, those that placed the bins, and to all who attended. A special thanks to Chris Thomason for coordinating this public service .

    one month and going strong! be sure to use the recycling bins. pick up twice a week. No bin for glass at present due to the broken glass which creates problems for workers. another note: leave tops – all tops – off containers – jars or bottles. And if you do not have someone for whom you are collecting the tabs off soda cans, collect them and take them to the Friends building, we’ll get them where they need to go. Happy Recycling!
