Sole to Soul, a popular shoe store in Clarks Summit Borough, was commended for its recycling efforts in August. Dorothy O‚??Connor, owner and shopkeeper, was vigilant with her recyclables.
‚??I go almost every day‚?Ě said Ms. O‚??Connor, ‚??I believe in it so strongly. I hope everyone will.‚?Ě
Sole to Soul showed interest/participation in the Borough recycling and the business's recycling tallies were the highest for September.
Sole to Soul was awarded a commendation certificate and two free parking spaces for September.
‚??In front of Beta Bread and Edward Jones would be a good location‚?Ě Dorothy suggested for free parking.
Compliments to Abington Journal, Guzek Associates, the Drapery Shop and Kidazzle for their performance. Patty Lawler, Councilwoman and Chair of Recycling programs within the Borough, said she hopes all businesses will participate. The opportunity to recycle is convenient ‚?? a large red dumpster near the DPW garage is on Davis Street. The dumpster, following single stream recycling, accepts cardboard, office paper, junk mail, aluminum cans, magazines, catalogs, newspaper, glass bottles, plastics (1 through 7).
‚??It‚??s a win, win for our commercial district,‚?Ě Patty said.
‚??We have 2 free parking spaces for the full month of October waiting to be awarded in the first week of October.‚?Ě.
Single Stream recycling has been well received by residents of Clarks Summit Borough. For more than 6 weeks, residents have been participating in single stream recycling and the Borough office can already see a savings.
Councilwoman Lawler reminds residents that every week residents can put out all recyclables. Although we‚??re missing the recyclables, bottles, jars and plastic should be clean and papers dry.
Bunnell‚??s Hardware on State Street is offering a special discount on large trash cans with wheels to make the recycling that much easier. Bunnell‚??s Hardware also has free recycling stickers and will help to place them on your container.
‚??The transition to single stream has been smooth. I‚??m proud of our residents,‚?Ě Borough Manager, Virginia Kehoe said.
