Moore recognized for recycling campaign | Environment
The City of Moore is being recognized nationally for its approach to 'going green' and helping neighbors out of this world.
The Recycle Moore program is being called a model program by the National League of Cities for its innovative and collaborative approaches within government.
The program encouraged residents to bring recyclables to the recycling center to help 'Mooretians," who were visitors from another planet.
The theme stated that the 'Mooretians' needed the materials to fuel their ship and return home safely.
The city went as far as wrapping an iconic water tower with a 130-foot-long banner using the campaign's slogan.
After a successful turnout, the program was named as one of 27 programs selected for the 2012 City Showcase.
The program will be highlighted during this year's Congress of Cities and Exposition later this month in Boston.
