$1,000 Goes to the Town of Scottsville
Environmental goals are important to the community of Scottsville. In 2016 it was the first Bee City in Virginia, promoting native pollinators in its parks.
To continue with improvements to their streetscapes, they will use their Green Grants award to initiate a recycling program. They will purchase marked recycling bins to go beside existing black trash bins that are located near parks, convenience stores, and at intervals along pedestrian paths. This will give citizens the opportunity to recycle many plastic bottles and aluminum cans that previously would have been sent to the landfill.
Congratulations Scottsville! Keep up the good work!
