Savannah Shredding Company gave Keep Liberty Beautiful an excellent opportunity to have more Shred Day events in Liberty County. The Savannah Shredding company is a local owner-operated shredding business that has been shredding Savannah documents since 2010. If you have unwanted paper, then they can shred it! They have mobile shredding trucks that can come to a location and shred it on-site. For more information about their services, you can visit their webpage https://savannahshredding.com/ or call them at (912) 713-7473.
They contacted our Liberty County Chamber for some information, and Ms. Leah Poole pointed them in our direction. I am so grateful because now we can have our first shred day in Midway!! This Saturday, November 14, 2020, at our regular quarterly Recycle It! Fairs, you can bring paper to shred at the Midway location (Liberty County Community Complex). Remember, your papers must be free of all metal and dry. You must be in line by 12:45pm.
The Keep Liberty Beautiful quarterly Recycle It! Fairs are where you can drop off numerous household items that cannot be dropped off at local recycling drop off centers. These Saturday fairs are from 9:00am until 1:00pm at our three convenient locations: Liberty County Health Department - 1113 East Oglethorpe Hwy in Hinesville, Liberty County Community Complex - 9397 East Oglethorpe in Midway, and Walthourville City Hall - 222 Busbee Drive in Walthourville.
Also, this weekend on Sunday, November 15, is America Recycles Day! This day is the only nationally-recognized day dedicated to promoting and celebrating recycling in the United States! Take the #berecycled pledge today! There have been 83,919 people who took the pledge already. You can take the recycling pledge online at https://americarecyclesday.org/pledge/
This week start or increase your recycling efforts. If you have never recycled, this would be a great week to start. Here’s what others have committed to recycling in 2020: Start recycling at home, work, school, and on the go; Buying products made with recycled content; and Educating and encouraging friends, family, and neighbors to take the #BeRecycled pledge. What action will you take to recycle more?
Although over the last several decades recycling in America has undoubtedly increased significantly. The national recycling rate has increased over the past 30 years. The current recycling rate is 35%. We still have over $9 billion in recyclable items being thrown in the trash each year. There is an opportunity for all of us to contribute to recycling efforts to reduce waste. We celebrate the 23rd anniversary of America Recycles Day this year. I urge you to recycle and reuse more of the stuff you have and reduce more waste that you create to minimize harm to our environment.

For America Recycles Day 2020, Keep America Beautiful wants you to pledge to:
Learn what materials are collected for recycling in your community
Act within the next month to reduce the amount of waste you produce, to recycle more, and buy products made with recycled content
Share in the next month to encourage one family member or one friend to take the #BeRecycled pledge
Recycling does make a difference that you can contribute to every day. When you recycle, you help to reduce the amount of waste sent to landfills and incinerators. It also conserves natural resources and prevents pollution by reducing the need to collect as many new raw materials. So, Make a choice to Recycle by taking the pledge!
