When Green Door Recycling started its curbside collection service in January of 2008, IM Design Group was the very first business to sign up.
Since then, IM has recycled about 10 pounds of paper, bottles and cans every two weeks, keeping more than 8,000 pounds of material out of the landfill.
“We tell clients that we recycle our paper and they always seem to appreciate that,” said IM co-owner Shawn Honea. “More businesses in Emporia should consider this service. It feels good knowing that we are keeping unnecessary items out of the landfills.”
Now in its fifth year of operation, the Green Door picks up mixed recyclables and hazardous waste from more than 150 regular stops around Emporia and Lyon County and provides recycling bins for special events throughout the year.
“Helping to keep stuff out of the landfill that doesn’t belong there is just part of the job,” said Ben Stallings, co-owner of the Green Door.
“Partnerships with local businesses like IM Design Group are what make this really worthwhile.”
