Meet the Founder
Recycling runs in my roots, taking me back to the ’70s when the hippy movement was raising our consciousness to many environmental issues. There was a part of my Virginia life where we gardened, raised chickens, pigs (that was only once!) hunted, fished and I can honestly say, “I only go to the store for aluminum foil”. Recycling was part of life.
Recycling isn’t as prominent in our community and/or state, we a group of concerned citizens & community & business leaders decided to follow my lead & help get glass recycling up & running. We’re all here to serve the greater good.
