Thank you to everyone who volunteered to make race recycling at the Silver Comet Half-Marathon a success! B Green Services and our team of volunteers did a fantastic job recycling paper cups and plastic water bottles and ended up keeping mounds of trash out of a landfill!
This year, the Silver Comet Half-Marathon is going to be eco-friendly with race recycling provided by B Green Services! The Atlanta recycling company will have recycling bins strategically placed near each of the water stops along the course and will have one of our volunteers work with the water stop volunteers to ensure all recyclables go into the bin and anything else goes into the trash (although most everything out there will be recycleable).
I’m tired of seeing Atlanta road races not recycle (like the Doug Kessler 5K and 10K this past weekend). Now, race recycling is coming to metro Atlanta – we’re going to start working with B Green Services to provide race recycling services around the city. Emil Bekyarov heads B Green Services, which currently provides complete recycling solutions to hotels and restaurants around Atlanta, and we’re going to work together to institute race recycling at the Silver Comet Half-Marathon in conjunction with Dana Greene of Get Fit Atlanta!
