Moore to revisit possibility of curbside recycling

The city currently has a recycling center where residents bring items but some would like the city to move to curbside recycling.

Lewis is an enthusiastic proponent of recycling.

“After the tornado we are looking at different ways to recycle,” he said. “We've asked about a machine that can recycle plastics in a machine large enough to extrude telephone poles that don't break in high winds. I've also read about recycling plastic to make bricks by mixing glass with it and injecting it into a mold. There are a lot of possibilities and ideas out there.”

Bonebreak and fellow Moore resident Memory Taylor have created a Facebook page in support of recycling in Moore.

“For me it's the simplest way to make an impact,” Taylor said. “I'm not a hippie but eventually we're going to run out of spaces to put this stuff. There are so many ways to contribute. We could be composting but right now I would settle for some curbside recycling.”

Taylor said she believes that in a city filled with young families the concept of recycling will be more accepted even if it includes a fee.

“This is a young town,” she said. “There are a lot of families and younger people growing up here. Moore has changed and our goal is to make people aware of recycling and how easy it can be even if it costs a few dollars extra per month. It's well worth it.”
