Rumpke of Ohio, Inc. and the City of Troy are announcing the newest recipient of the Rumpke “Look Who Is Recycling” quarterly reward program for City of Troy residents who actively participate in recycling. The recipient is the Chris Starnes family, who live on Scott Street. In the response to the question, “why do you recycle,” Mr. Starnes wrote: “The more items we can keep out of the landfills, the better for our community and environment. We have a family of 5; while many complain about the size of the city’s new trash cans, we are much more likely to fill our recyclables than our trash cart.”
To educate citizens on the subject of recycling and to encourage participation in Troy’s curbside recycling program, Rumpke of Ohio, Inc., the City’s curbside recycling contractor, has included Troy residents in Rumpke’s quarterly reward program. For citizens interested in this program, go to https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/BGC8K5S and answer the question, “why do you recycle?”
Mr. Starnes received a gift bag provided by Rumpke of Ohio, Inc., which includes several items and a gift card from a local restaurant. He was presented with the gift bag on behalf of Rumpke by Mayor Michael Beamish at the Troy City Council meeting held December 2.
Mayor Beamish commented: “I hope that other residents follow the example set by the Starnes family, and the prior recipients of this recognition, in being good stewards and protecting our environment by taking recycling seriously, especially when it comes to filling the recycling tote whenever items can be recycled. The City appreciates the efforts of our contractor, Rumpke, in sponsoring this rewards program and providing information for citizens regarding the value and benefits of recycling – not only for today, but for future generations.”
