To the Citizens of Poth,

We are pleased to announce the opening of the Poth Recycling Facility. This facility is located at the Poth Independent School District (ISD) Bus Barn behind the Precinct 2 County Yard. This is a project organized by the Poth Education Foundation, Poth ISD, Wilson County Precinct 2, the city of Poth, and IESI.

This project is good for the community for three reasons.

First, if the recycle container is used properly, everyone knows recycling is good for the environment. It helps us to be good stewards of our planet. Being conservative with our resources is very important for our future.

Second, if the recycle container is used properly, it will create a profit. The profits from the recycling container will benefit the Poth Education Foundation. The mission of the Poth Education Foundation is to partner with the community to generate and distribute resources to enrich teaching, inspire learning, and maximize innovative opportunities for all students in the Poth school district. We could not think of a better organization to benefit from the profit of protecting our children’s future than an organization whose sole purpose is to enrich the educational opportunities for those students.

Third, if the recycle container is used properly, it can help to maintain the lowest possible refuse rate for the citizens of Poth. We are working with our trash pickup provider, IESI, on this project. They will be monitoring the amount of trash and will pick up at your curbside. Did you know that about 85 percent of the trash in your curbside container is recyclable? If we as a community recycle properly, we can reduce the amount of waste taken to the landfill. This allows us to maintain a refuse rate when fuel prices rise or possibly even lower the refuse rate if we dramatically drop the amount of waste picked up.

We italicized “if the recycle container is used properly” to emphasize recycling responsibility. You can recycle many things like food boxes, aluminum cans, tin cans, steel cans, aerosol cans, plastic tubs, plastic jars, plastic trays, plastic bottles, glass jars, glass bottles, cardboard, magazines, junk mail, catalogs, newspapers, books, and paper.

You cannot recycle food waste, plastic bags, wet and soiled papers, yard waste, wood, Styrofoam, pizza boxes, electronics, motor oil containers, window glass, or light blubs.

I would like to thank several people who helped make this possible: The Poth Education Foundation, Royce Gray with IESI, Scott Caloss with the Poth ISD, Wilson County Pct. 2 Commissioner Paul Pfeil, Adolf Serna and Serna Roofing, Patrick Pruski, Larry Kroll, Clarence Pruski, Weston Services, Rose Huizar, Misty Fish, Buck Griffin, and the City of Poth Waterworks Department.

God Bless.

Travis Pruski is the mayor of Poth.
