Bringing awareness to recycling

An assemblyman and the director of public works for the county were on hand to help Whitehall residents take out the trash last Friday.


As part of their joint-program to help increase recycling in Washington County, New York State Assemblyman Anthony Jordan and Washington County Director of Public Works Willie Grimmke were in Whitehall on Jan. 15 to lend a helping hand at the transfer station that saw the biggest increase in the use of its recycling facilities.

 

Whitehall won the recycling challenge with an 18-percent increase in their recycling,” said Jordan. “We are here making good on our promise to spend some time with the winning site and work with the employees there.”

 

Jordan and Grimmke both worked throughout the day to help people with their recycling and trash disposal at the site.

 

Grimmke said the idea for the challenge was a joint idea that came about while the two were talking one day.

 

“We were talking one day and it came up as part of the conversation,” said Grimmke. “The challenge kind of evolved out of that.”

 

“Willie was the brain-child of this,” said Jordan. “Our effort is to bring awareness to the recycling centers and the need to reuse and recycle.”
