Will Bay St. Louis soon join the 73% of communities in the U.S. with curbside recycling service? Take a short survey that can help determine that!
- by Ellis Anderson
Long-time residents of Bay St. Louis remember an idyllic, but short, pre-Katrina period when curbside recycling was a standard city service.
During the recovery years, recycling seemed low on the list of essential community amenities. Although community recycling bins were eventually set up around the town (thanks to efforts led by Marcie Baria and others), curbside service was never restored.
Now that Bay St. Louis has become the darling of national media and consistently remains at the top of fastest growing cities in the state, more people are noticing the lack of a service that 73% of communities in the country consider standard.
This week a survey is making the rounds in the community that will help determine local interest in curbside recycling. The survey was created by the Hancock Chamber Greenways & Scenic Byways Committee, working in conjunction with the Hancock County Solid Waste Authority.
All Hancock County residents are being asked to participate - and to share the survey with friends and neighbors via social media. The survey only takes about five minutes according to its creators.
