At the August 7 City Council meeting, Council President Bill Lutz announced the “Look Who Is Recycling” award winner for the second quarter of 2023. Rumpke of Ohio, Inc., the City’s curbside recycling contractor, runs the program as a tool to encourage residential recycling. Awards are given quarterly to City of Troy residents who actively recycle and share their reasons for doing so.
This quarter’s winner is Amy Lewis of Thornhill Drive. She shares her home with her husband, Scott, and their two children.
For the question, “Why do you recycle?” Amy wrote: “Recycling builds a healthy path for not only our own futures , but also for our children’s futures. Within that goal recycling also builds a better environment for all living creatures who share this world with us. Being able to set an example for the younger generations and build responsibility within the path we help guide them in life. Recycling may seem like a small task to focus on now, but in the lives of their futures it will have major results for a world we share.”
