A Note from Jane
Can you remember what year curbside recycling started in the City of Columbia?
If you guessed 1991, you are correct! Robert Anderson
, who was instrumental in starting Columbia’s recycling program
, was recently recognized as one of the national 2020 Top Ten Public Works Leaders of the Year
for his many notable achievements.
Sonoco Recycling feels honored to have partnered with the City of Columbia’s recycling efforts for nearly 20 years. And now, a new project
by the City of Columbia’s Public Works and the Five Points Association is under way to revitalize the parking lot near the fountain. This eco- friendly project will feature new landscaping, lighting, solar-powered pay stations and rubber mulch to help with storm water runoff. Keep up the good work, Columbia Public Works!
