Greta Godbey is the City of Hartsville’s Recycler of the Month for December 2015.
For years, she has sought to make sure that limited resources will be reused, she said, recycling paper, cans and bottles, and even maintaining a compost pile.
“If you reuse it, you don’t have to get new material out of the earth,” she said. “We have to think of our children, grandchildren, and great-great-great-great grandchildren, that they will still have something too.”
As the Recycler of the Month, Godbey received a yard sign as well as a gift certificate to the Midnight Rooster Coffee Shop and Eatery, 136 E. Carolina Ave. in Hartsville.
The award program highlights those city residents participating in the City of Hartsville’s recycling program, a partnership between the City and Sonoco.
