Solid Waste & Recycling Program


By Bob Augustin Jr.



     Gary Wayne Hyde, Manager of the County Solid Waste and Recycling Center, presented a program on the Lawrence County Solid Waste and Recycling Program at the Rotary Club's February 9, 2007 meeting. Gary's presentation focused on the recycling efforts at the Center.  According to Gary, the School Recycling program is the primary reason for the County's recent success recycling efforts.  The County provides each school with a wooden building built specifically for storage of recyclable products.  The buildings were financed through money from a grant and built by the inmates from the Clifton Correctioanal facility which greatly reduced the cost of the program.  Gary explained that recycling materials reduces the amount of trash that we have to bury in-county or ship out to disposal sites in other areas, thereby reducing the expense of disposing of the materials.

     The County provides the yellow recycling trash bags which can be picked up at each school's recycling building or at the County Solid Waste and Recycling Center.  Materials that can be recycled through the program are cardboard, books, newspapers, magazines, No. 1 and No. 2 plastics, and aluminum. Glass products, however, should never be put in the recycling trash bags. 

     The school's are in competition to collect the most recycled trash.  Recycled materials can be deposited at the recycling building at the local school or at the Center.  When deposting the recycled trash at the Center, simply tell the folks at the Center and they will credit the school of your choice.

    Other materials that can be brought to the County Solid Waste and Recycling Center to be recycled are tires, batteries, scrap metals, used motor oil, and wood products.  The Center also has purchased an industial strength shredder for shredding paper products.  Because Lawrence County is required to recycle at least 25% of its total waste production, the Recycling Program will continue to be an important program.  For more information on how to recycle at your home or business, contact Gary Wayne Hyde at  (931) 766-4469 or by Email at gwh@co.lawrence.tn.us  .
