Green Team turns 100 tons of trash into treasure

When the Carbon County Green Team first came together in 2009, the options for recycling in Carbon County were not plentiful. Now three years later, the numbers show recycling is growing among county residents, leaving Green Team members searching for more recycling opportunities in the area. While Green Team members believed residents in Carbon County would embrace the idea of recycling, they didn't think the notion of recycling would take off as it has over time.

While the work is still ongoing to get funding through grants and other similar means, local Price resident Loren Unsworth said the goal is to get a baler which would allow for the Green Team to start accepting plastic and cardboard. Sun Advocate
