RE3.ORG Event Promotes Recycling & New Plastic Bottle Ban

The environmental group RE3.org (reduce, reuse, recycle) was at the corner of Main and Lombard Streets today with a plastic bottle display that's been described as "unique, inspiring and creative." They were promoting the state's new law that bans plastic bottles from your trash, and from the state's landfills. The law, which went into effect Oct. 1, also mandates the recycling of motor oil filters and wooden pallets. Already, state law mandates the recycling of aluminum cans and corrugated cardboard.

Kelley Denning spoke about why they were in Clayton:

It was a pleasure hanging out in downtown Clayton today. Remember to recycle those bottles.
