Shawnee City Commission Curbside Recycling Workshop September 3rd

Congratulations Shawnee! You will be curbside recycling before the new year! After many years of hard work and advocacy, the city commission voted to begin curbside recycling in Shawnee. Hooray! Though some of the details are still being worked out, the program should be in place within 60-90 days. We should be recycling essentially what we are now at the drop-off centers but further details and community education will be forthcoming.
Please take a moment to thank Commissioners Stephens, Smith, Winterringer, Hall and Mayor Mainord for their leadership. It takes courage to lead and they have shown it. Make sure they know how much you appreciate their efforts.
Thank you to everyone who called, wrote and attended in support of recycling over the years. - Mayor Wes Mainord - Commissioner Pam Stephens - Commissioner Keith Hall - Commissioner John Winterringer - Commissioner Steve Smith
