Wow! We knew Mary Pat Baldauf, sustainability facilitator for the city of Columbia, was smaller than she used to be (here’s where she blogs about her successful reducing campaign), but this is taking things to extremes.
OK — truth be told, it’s the recycling bin that’s out of proportion here.
The giant bin was on display in the Bi-Lo parking lot in Parkland Shopping Center in Cayce today. Mary Pat and others were on hand to announce that the city is entering into a public-private partnership with Coca Cola and Bi-Lo called “Recycle and Win” — a program to increase public awareness of recycling and boost recycling collection.
And what better way to emphasize that than to have on hand what organizers billed as the “world’s largest” recycling bin.
Doubt that claim? Well, let’s see you come up with a bigger one…
