What does Kermit know anyway?

Kermit was wrong when he said it wasn’t easy being green.

Being green can be easy when you have the cooperation of local businesses and city officials, as can be attested by the success and the cooperation extended to the second annual Christmas tree roundup sponsored by Stine Lumber and the Green Alliance.

Once again the residents of Natchez and Adams County showed they would support recycling programs if given the opportunity to do so. Stine was instrumental in this whole project by providing the facility and the staff to monitor the trees during the campaign.

Three large roll off containers provided by Waste Management were left overflowing for James Worthey and Richard Butler of TDF Tree Service to chip up.

Additional “atta boys” go to TDF for also making the multiple deliveries it took to take the resulting mulch to the city barn to await distribution.

Hats off to City Engineer David Gardner for coordinating this activity on behalf of the city. So, the next time you are driving through the city or are enjoying the various activities associated with the soon-to-be completed Trails Project, who knows, you may also be admiring your old Christmas tree in a whole new and different life.

Not only can recycling be easy, it can also be fun.

The Green Alliance is considering sponsoring a Christmas in July summer workshop featuring the making of Christmas tree ornaments from recyclable items.

If you are interested in participating either as an attendee, a session leader or just to lend a hand, please contact Yvonne Murray at her e-mail address: murrayy@bellsouth.net.

Kermit was wrong; being green can be both easy and fun!

Steve McNerney is president of the Natchez Green Alliance.
