Three 'Caught Green-Handed' in Lawrence

Aug. 01, 2013 @ 12:00 AM

SOUTH POINT -- Recycling efforts are going strong in Lawrence County, where three people have been "Caught Green Handed" since April.

The Caught Green Handed program is offered by the Lawrence-Scioto County Solid Waste Management District, which each month visits its recycling stations in various locations throughout the two counties to "catch" local recyclers in the act. For their efforts, the recyclers are rewarded with a $25 Visa gift card, a T-shirt, and an information packet.

For the month of April, Charles Carey was "caught" recycling at the South Point Walmart.

In May, Justin Holley was "caught" at the Municipal Court parking lot in Chesapeake.

In July, Roger Humphreys was "caught" recycling at the Ironton Eagles lot.

For more information about this program, call the waste district at 740-532-1231 between the hours of 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
