Sometime next summer, when Webster residents are enjoying their new pool, they can do a little thank-you lap for all the community- and environment-minded people who set aside their recycling to help make it happen.
The new pool, which is being built by Aberdeen contractor JDH, is being financed through a 20-year bond issue and by volunteer fundraising. One of the key components in those volunteer efforts is can and paper recycling.
Volunteers for WAVE, the Webster Aquatic Venture for Excellence, which has spearheaded the effort to get a new pool in Webster, began recycling aluminum cans in 2006 and have raised over $11,000. Paper recycling began in December 2010 and in a year’s time raised over $8,800.
