Residents to rally for recycling
“The drop-off center took glass, steel, aluminum and paper, as well as hazardous materials,” Hooker said. “I was shocked when I came here, and there wasn’t even a drop-off. Everywhere else I went they had that, and I just took those things for granted.”
Today, Hooker is still holding onto a petition with 175 signatures she obtained to present to the city to launch a curbside recycling program, similar to one in the Shreveport area that picks up recycling materials in place of garbage one day a week.
