The Breathitt County Recycling Center in partnership with the Breathitt County Action Team recently held a drawing for a $25 Gift Card from Walmart. A total of four cards were given away. Congratulations to our four winners, Cindy Kosch, Judith Jett, Kevin Sullivan, and Raymond Fugate. Names were drawn from everyone that signed in when they brought in their recyclables to the center during this promotion. The drawing was held in honor of America Recycles Day. America Recycles Day is a national program of Keep America Beautiful, and is the only nationally recognized day and community-driven awareness event dedicated to promoting and celebrating recycling in the U.S. Since its inception in 1997, communities across the country have participated in America Recycles Day on November 15 to educate, promote environmental citizenship, and encourage action.
