CONWAY,  SC – The Horry County Solid Waste Authority recently recognized Loris resident Michael Blanton, as the “Caught Green Handed” recipient for the month of July.

“The ‘Caught Green Handed’ recognition is presented monthly to a Horry County resident caught in the act of recycling” stated Esther Murphy, Director of Recycling and Corporate Affairs for the Solid Waste Authority. “It’s the Solid Waste Authority’s way of recognizing and thanking citizens who have made the effort to recycle. Through their recycling efforts, natural resources are saved and the amount of waste being landfilled is reduced.” Mr. Blanton, a regular recycler at the Homewood Recycling Center, was surprised and honored to receive this recognition.
