Recyclers of the Month – March 2015Roommates Jamie Ackerman and Rachel Randall and are the City of Hartsville’s Recyclers of the Month for March 2015.
As relatively recent college graduates now living on their own in a city with recycling services, they said they felt a responsibility to recycle.
“It was never a question of whether or not we were going to recycle,” Ackerman said. “It was accessible. We picked it up the second we got here.”
“I don’t think recycling is necessarily a choice anymore, it’s become the norm for many in our generation,” Randall said. “We don’t really think about it, we just do it.”
As the Recyclers of the Month, Ackerman and Randall received a yard sign as well as a gift certificate to the Midnight Rooster Coffee Shop and Eatery, 136 E. Carolina Ave. in Hartsville.
The award program highlights those city residents participating in the City of Hartsville’s recycling program, a partnership between the city and Sonoco.
