Keep Collier Beautiful – Naples, FL

The City of Naples, Florida observes Earth Day — in a big way — by hosting an Electronics Recycling Event & Free Secure Document Shredding at the Solid Waste old location. The event is held to save natural resources, landfill space and money. By partnering Goodwill Industries, residents in Naples & Collier County are given the opportunity to REDUCE, REUSE, & REPURPOSE unwanted electronics. This goes hand-in-hand with the State’s Drive it Home KOPLF.

There were an estimated 150+ vehicles dropping off electronics & items for shredding (vehicles will be counted at next event.)

KEEP MOORE COUNTY BEAUTIFUL

Keep Moore County Beautiful Cleanup effort helps “Lost City” Neighborhood

Eastman Road, which runs off West Pennsylvania Avenue Extension, goes through an area known as Lost city with dilapidated, abandoned homes on overgrown lots. Because of its hidden remote location, it is mostly an illegal dumping ground consisting of household trash, hundreds of old tires, construction debris, a few old appliances and other junk. In the month of April , a number of county, town and state agencies moved in and took action to clean up this area, along with our Executive Director for Keep Moore County Beautiful, Chad Beane.

Because of the huge undertaking with the amount of material and the kind of material, it was too much for KMCB board members, staff and volunteers to handle. So the county and Keep Moore County Beautiful marshaled the forces of an inmate crew from the Sherriff’s Department led by Sheriff Neil Godfrey and some heavy equipment from the NC Department of Transportation to place large piles of debris into dumpsters. This clean up took (3) days of hard work.
We collected (3) dumpster of trash and debris along with 83 tires.

The community of Stockwell and surrounding communities love our Bulky Trash and Tire collection.  Local farmers are able to dispose of Tractor and Semi tires for a nominal fee.  This helps reduce the amount of tires “laying around or local farms.”  Leifler Tire company recycles 80-90% of the tires using them for cow bedding, highway barrels and playground mulch.
