FDL County's smallest township has big idea

Metomen, the smallest township in Fond du Lac County, has received a grant from Keep America Beautiful, a program of the Anheuser-Busch Foundation. The grant provides 25 recycling bins to be loaned out free of charge for gatherings such as ball games, family reunions, 4th of July picnics and other events.

Individuals as well as non-profit organizations are able to borrow the bins, which have a wire framework and fold for easy transport. The containers are covered and hold plastic bags. Borrowers place them near a trash barrel to collect aluminum cans, bottles, and plastics numbered 1 and 2. Then, as coordinator Marilyn Perr explains, "You can recycle everything at the Town of Metomen garage or through the curbside collection in your own area. Some organizations keep the aluminum separate and make a little cash for their group. We do need people to clean the lids and return the empty bins within 48 hours of their event."

Perr applied for the grant because she wanted to see less trash in landfills. "People can set them up at graduation parties, Little League games, and brat fries," she says. "These bins make clean-up really easy." Already the Fairwater Lions and Rosendale Lions have arranged to use them.

To borrow bins, call 748-2928 or 346-7152.
