WILMINGTON – Isn’t there an end to good recyclers in Clinton County?

Clinton County Solid Waste Management District resident enforcer Buster the Mouse has caught 3 good recyclers for 1!

The Bechard family – Sophia, Gabe and Veronica – were on their way home from school at Wilmington Middle School when they were caught recycling at the Main Street Wilmington drop-off point (next to Bill Marine Ford).

Gabe and Sophie undoubtedly taught their mother a thing or two about recycling and the need to preserve natural resources for future generations.

The Bechard family separated all their clean bottles, jugs, jars, cans and papers from their trash, then emptied all recyclable items into the green recycling bins — they were sure not to put plastic bags in the containers.

These kids are so good at following directions! Gabe was even passionate enough about recycling to bravely take on the bees that seemed to really want to be his friends. Sophie, the good big sister that she is, helped protect him and ensure his safety.

Take advantage of your Bechard Family recycled content prizes — and thank you for the family’s effort!
