“CAUGHT GREEN HANDED”
“The ‘Caught Green Handed’ recognition is presented monthly to a Horry County resident caught in the act of recycling” stated Esther Murphy, Director of Recycling and Corporate Affairs for the Solid Waste Authority. “It’s the Solid Waste Authority’s way of recognizing and thanking citizens who have made the effort to recycle. Through their recycling efforts, natural resources are saved and the amount of waste being landfilled is reduced.” For more information on recycling, please contact the Solid Waste Authority at 843.347.1651.
