Metro Beautification & Environment Commission, Nashville, TN

Metro Beautification would like to express a big THANK YOU!!!! to Keep America Beautiful and Waste Management for the 2014 Waste Management Think Green Grant. We were able to completely overhaul our recycling education room located in the Waste Management materials recovery facility. This included installing recycled content flooring, painting the walls, installing large live-sized decals of aluminum, plastic, paper and cardboard bales, a cabinet displaying items made from recycled material, as well as installation of a camera and large screen tvs that create a virtual window into the recycling facility. The camera can be controlled in the education room by the kids or adults to see how recyclables are processed. Our education room is rather small, but this grant helped us to maximize the space and create a fun, educational and interactive experience!
