Savannah's Recycling Petition

I received an email regarding the recycling petition (although I think it's the 3rd one I've signed) in my In Box today. If you live in Savannah, have you signed the petition yet? If not...do it already! And in the meantime, you can sign up for Rare Earth Recyling, which is a recycling service that offers home pickup weekly ($30/month) or biweekly ($15/month). [If you sign up put my name as a reference so I can get a month free pickup!] They even provide labeled bins for you to use. Sigh...there is a Green God!

Dear Fellow Savannahians,
As of this afternoon 1,563 Savannahians have signed the recycling petition. Have you?

If you haven't, please sign
here right nowIf you have already signed, please forward this to everyone you know and ask them to do the same. If you live outside the city, please forward this to everyone you know who lives in the city and ask them to forward it on as well.The Time Is NowWe have just 49 days to gather 9,000 more signatures!It is time for the people to make their voices heard, to pull this city up, to insist that we do not want to pollute our air and water with the burning of our recyclables any longer.It is now completely up to the citizens of this city to make recycling policy.



See what signers of the petition are saying:"Curbside recycling in Savannah is LONG overdue. Let's get with the new century please...""I am still amazed that Savannah doesn't have curbside recycling. In the two areas I lived prior to moving to Savannah 7 years ago we had curbside recycling. Let's catch up with the rest of the country.""If Savannah can spend millions of dollars fixing up downtown, then why can't we have this simple service to advance our neighborhoods?""The time has come to do our part.""It is a real statement on the lack of leadership in the City that a clear opportunity over the past three years to provide a substantive recycling program has been in so many ways politely ignored. If we are indeed going to be a sustainable creative coast with a record as one of the greenest counties in Georgia, this is long hanging fruit."Read more comments from petition signers here.


Sincerely,
Savannah Recycling Organizers

Hey! i live in Savannah and was looking up how I could recycle around here when I found your blog mentioning rare earth on Google, but the site is just a list of other sites! WTF is that about? I've searched elsewhere for contact info but this is impossible! If you can help clear this up for me, I would so appreciate it! My email is aridle20@student.scad.edu
