To celebrate November’s National Recycle Day, Keep Citrus County Beautiful is offering a guided tour of the County’s landfill and recycling facilities on Friday, November 15 from 9:30am-12:30pm. Registration is required no later than November 12. Space is limited; email laceblue@gmail.com or call 352-419-1569 for more information and to reserve a seat. The day begins with the behind the scenes tour of the County’s recycling efforts ending with lunch and a brief presentation.

 

Details: Meet at 9:15 am at the Duke Energy Parking Lot (brick building) located on the corner of Hwy. 44 and Independence Hwy in Inverness.  We will climb aboard a bus at 9:30 am promptly heading to the County’s Landfill to see the recycling opportunities provided by the County, tour the landfill to learn how different types of material are managed, and how non-recyclable items are disposed. Buses will return us back to Duke Energy’s Inverness Operations Center (new building adjacent to brick building). Upon arrival, we will have a short break before the lunch and the presentation.

 

Keep Citrus County Beautiful (KCCB), in partnership with Citrus County Solid Waste Division and Duke Energy, is offering this tour to promote the importance of recycling throughout the County. KCCB is excited about this strategic partnership and invites the community to come take the tour and learn how RECYCLE OFTEN, RECYCLE RIGHT can help protect our county's natural resources and save money in the long run!

Snag 'N' Bag

KCCB provides litter bag dispensers and monofilament fishing line collection stations as part of its Snag 'N' Bag
Program.
 These stations are located at a number of popular fishing piers and launching ramps around the county for the community to help keep the waterways clean.

Boaters are encouraged to take a litter bag with them and to "leave no litter in their wake". The fishing line recycling stations provide a place for old fishing lines to be recycled into new fishing equipment, helping to avoid injuries to marine wildlife.

Monofilament - A problem in the environment?
Monofilament is a very thin and often clear fishing line making it very difficult for birds and animals to avoid. They can easily become entangled in it, or even worse, ingest the line.
Contact the Florida Fish and Wildlife Wild Alert Program at 1-888-404-3922 to report injured wildlife.
