Recycling program kicks off in Valdosta

February 20, 2004

Valdosta - A South Georgia amusement park is helping its guests reduce and reuse.

Wild Adventures has teamed up with the city of Valdosta and Keep Lowndes-Valdosta Beautiful for a community recycling drive. Fifty-five recycling receptacles are set up throughout the park to collect 20 ounce plastic soft drink bottles.

"It's going to keep unnecessary garbage out of our landfills, and make a huge improvement in the overall environment," said Mayor John Fretti.

"I'm proud to live in a town where our local government can work with businesses for the betterment of the community," said Kent Buescher, Park Owner.

The program is paid for with a $1,000 grant the city received from the Georgia Recycling Coalition, along with donations from the city and Keep Lowndes-Valdosta Beautiful.
