Donna Fechter has a new way to positively impact the environment.
Boyle County’s solid waste director proudly unveiled two new mobile recycling units Wednesday that will be used to accept and transport cardboard, bottles and cans from festivals and events.
The $18,500 cost of the brightly decorated units was covered by a grant from the Kentucky Division of Waste Management awarded to Boyle Fiscal Court.
“We wrote the grant for the fiscal year and bought them three months ago, but we waited to have them delivered until it was warm enough to apply the design,” said Fechter.
Eben and Janet Henson of City Art Signs transformed the plain units according to Fechter’s description of what she wanted them to say — and to mean.
