In 2010 the Washington County Youth Bureau/Alternative Sentencing Agency applied for the Coca Cola / KAB Recycling Bin Grant. They received over 1,700 applications and ours was one of 82 chosen! We received 75 Clear Stream Bottle/Can Recycling Bins.
These bins can be borrowed by Washington County Community groups for special events.
Our goals for the Borrow a Bin Program are simple:
- We want to reduce the number of plastic bottles/cans that enter the waste stream.
- We want to help our local communities by giving them an easy way to reduce the costs associated with garbage disposal.
- We want to help events raise money.
