Recycle with Rick: Thanks to all you recyclers for your great efforts!

By Rick Sturgeon

MCSW&R Coordinator

 My name is Rick Sturgeon and I’m the new Coordinator at Meade County Solid Waste & Recycle. In April 2017, I started out as a recycle employee then was promoted to Recycle Manager in September 2019. Two months ago, I became the Coordinator. Hopefully, my hands on work experience at the recycle center will help me do the best job possible for Meade County!

 One of my main goals is to have a good, positive relationship with citizens of our community.

 We have an open door policy and anyone is welcome to visit us any time. We’ll be happy to take you on a tour of the center!

 Besides keeping our operation running smoothly, I would like to increase recycle education and get more residents and businesses recycling. We will do our best to keep up with Meade County’s rapidly growing recycle program. I plan to provide room for more bales and single stream product.

 Our rolloff business has really picked up and we recently were able to buy new boxes. Please call us at (270) 422-2868 for more information about renting one.

 All of us at MCSWR thank you for your continued dedication to recycling and for working diligently with us to keep the program succeeding.

 We appreciate that you take the time to separate your material at our satellite centers and for putting it in the correct slots. This is very helpful and keeps contamination out of our bins and bales.

 We also appreciate you breaking down your cardboard and placing it in the bins rather than stacking it around them. Little efforts like this go a very long way in helping us to keep our county neat and clean.

 Visit our main center in Brandenburg. Bring your aluminum, batteries, brass, cardboard, copper, magazines, milk jugs, newspaper, oil, # 1 and #2 plastics, steel and paper. If it’s more convenient, take

your materials to any of our seven satellite locations.

 If you don’t already recycle, please give it a try. Your efforts will help save natural resources and leave you with a feeling of pride! It’s not too late to start. Recycling will help the earth and future generations of your own family.
