Partners with the regional recycling center are City of Shreveport, Goodwill Industries and BFI, Inc. Materials accepted include: bagged mixed paper; aluminum, steel and tin cans; clear glass bottles and jars; and plastics 1 and 2 from area citizens. The center is part of a regional project that is coordinating recycling efforts among the four governmental units of Bossier City, Bossier Parish, City of Shreveport and Caddo Parish.
Diane Chandler is the recycling coordinator for Bossier City, and noted that the center will also accept newspaper, flattened corrugated cardboard, scrap metal/white goods and used motor oil. As part of the opening day event, visitors were invited to attend neighborhood backyard composting workshops and receive compost cages. There was a drawing for a large Seattle Composter, and awards were presented for Litter Barrel Art and Earth Day Essay Contests.Bossier1.jpg (72110 bytes)
