I had no idea we had a private curbside recycling service in the greater Mooresville area until I received an email from Patrica Doak, who, with her husband, started the Think Green Recycle Service last December.
While we take loads to the Iredell County Transfer Station on HWY 150, it is great to know that we now have curbside pick up in Mooresville and its surrounding areas.
Think Green Recycle Service offers a weekly curbside pickup of the following:
- Aluminum and Steel Cans
- Glass bottles (ALL COLORS!)
- Plastics (ALL numbered 107!)
They do not accept:
- Plastic bags or wrappers (Harris Teeter will take the bags)
- Styrofoam products
- Paper plates, napkins or towels
- Paints, gas cans
Right now, according to Trish Doak, they already have one “Green School”, Lake Norman Elementary. They recycle their paper and plastic. What a great way to teach children about the importance of recycling and the environment! I hope that more of our local schools get on board with this great program.
FYI, I purchased a wonderful plastic trash can on line that has a built-in aluminum can-crusher on top which is great for maximizing space. You can get other recycling bins at Lowe’s Home Improvement.
