Hall family honored for recycling

TROY — Rumpke of Ohio, Inc. and the city of Troy are announcing the newest recipient of the Rumpke “Look Who Is Recycling” quarterly reward program for city of Troy residents who actively participate in recycling. The recipient is Jeanine Hall’s family, of Thornhill Drive. In her response to the question, “Why do you recycle?,” Hall wrote, “We recycle because we want to keep stuff out of the landfills that could be used for good. Our two little girls, ages 3 and 4, love to take the milk jugs and laundry jugs out to the recycling bin and play basketball with them. If nobody recycled, we couldn’t image what our landfills would look like when our daughters grow up.”

To educate residents on the subject of recycling and to encourage participation in Troy’s curbside recycling program, Rumpke of Ohio, Inc., the city’s curbside recycling contractor, has included Troy residents in Rumpke’s quarterly reward program. For residents interested in this program, go to https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/BGC8K5S and answer the question, “why do you recycle?”

The Hall family received a gift bag provided by Rumpke of Ohio, Inc., which includes several items and a gift card from a local restaurant.
