New grant to expand recycling program


Organizers have not yet decided on a location for the trailer, but it should be placed in a little over a month.

Last week, JCCS was presented with a Green Business Award from Rend Lake College in recognition of the company's recycling program.

The planned expansion of the program is great news for the community, said Greg Hollmann, associate professor at RLC. Placing a trailer at a highly visible location in Mt. Vernon should make it easier for residents to recycle, he said.

“The more convenient you make recycling, the better,” Hollmann said. “Having it at a highly visible location where people might be going anyway will help out the cause.”
