At the Knox County Solid Waste Management District, one of our missions is to address the issues concerning solid waste management for all of Knox County and develop a method for the reduction of waste reaching the landfill. In the spring of 2011, preparations for the Knox County Fair began. The District decided that this would be a perfect opportunity to reduce waste going into the landfill.
A call was made to Jarrod at Busch Systems and with his knowledge of the products available, we made the choice of the Outdoor Super Sorter. I expressed my ideas for the graphics to go on the front of the recycling containers.
Busch Systems went above and beyond what I had in mind and created a perfect logo/design. July 18 was opening day of the Knox County Fair. With the impressive recycling containers in place, the recycling of bottles and cans was a success for the whole week.
