Anyone who utilizes the drive-thru at the Java House will see recycle bins filled with cardboard, plastic and glass .

“It’s nice to see local businesses take recycling seriously,” said Stacie Smith, Teen Green Volunteer Program Chair. “I frequent this coffee shop and always commend owner Donna Humphrey about her exceptional recycling efforts.”

This past Saturday, Teen Green volunteers, members of Boy Scout Troop 54 stopped by the Java House to collect recycle items while in route to the City’s Recycle Center. This stop offered real life experience of how one business is striving to improve their carbon footprint. “It’s one thing to establish a recycle bin at home, but it’s an eye-opener when you see how much one local business can generate,” said Rod Powell, Scout Master of Troop 54.

The Boy Scouts earned community service hours assisting with drop offs at the City’s Recycle Center located at 104 Bell Road . The Center is manned by Teen Green volunteers on the second Saturday of each month.
