Cardboard Recycling Program a Huge Success

The Lewis County Solid Waste Department announced that there are now 53 businesses and organizations in Lewis County participating in its Cardboard Recycling Program! Over 55 recycling bins were purchased over the summer with TDOT Litter Grant Funds by Lewis County Chief Operating Officer Johnny Clayton, meaning no local tax dollars have been spent for those bins.

The county also has large cardboard recycling trailer...
