A new member of Hall County Resource Recovery's "Adopt-a-Can" program is making its debut this weekend. The Hall County Animal Shelter is the newest participant in the program, which allows groups to "adopt" roll-off recycling receptacles and paint them in order to increase awareness about recycling in the Hall County community.
"This was a wonderful opportunity for the Animal Shelter to promote its new branding while encouraging the community to do two things: adopt a shelter pet and recycle," said Hall County Animal Shelter Coordinator Cindy Langman.
Langman, along with Gainesville's Main Street Manager Regina Mansfield and Susan Allen with the Shelter's Volunteer Advisory Board, spent the past week painting the bin, which was recently moved to the Flowery Branch compactor site, located at 4395 Falcon Parkway in Flowery Branch.
"I am so grateful for the work of our wonderful volunteers," Langman said. "They spent some long days making sure this bin was painted and ready for use."
The adopted can features the Hall County Animal Shelter's new logo, which was unveiled earlier this year to emphasize the shelter's mission to give all stray animals a temporary home regardless of age, breed or medical needs.
The "Adopt-a-Can" program is a continuance of previous marketing efforts by Hall County in order to promote recycling. The adopted receivers have rotated between Hall County's busiest compactor sites, promoting the adopting organization while also encouraging residents to protect the environment.
The Hall County Animal Shelter is located at 1688 Barber Road, Gainesville, Ga. 30507. More information about the shelter, including pets available for adoption and donation opportunities, can be found at animalshelter.hallcounty.org.
