YAY for Recycling!

Happy February UpState.

We’re 1/12th of the way through the year already.  That’s pretty nuts to me.  It goes by quick, so let’s all try to pack as much into February as we can, before it’s gone too.

More good news on the job front.  Pratt industries just announced that it plans to invest $3.5 million in its new Material Recovery Facility in Duncan.  They expect their operation to be fully functional by April 1st.  The project is expected to generate 30 new jobs.

This is great news for those of us that believe in the benefits of recycling and job growth in the Upstate.

Think about this, even if you don’t believe in the environmental benefits of recycling, if we were all to recycle more, it may just create more and more jobs.

On a side note, the Employment resourses survey period for the library is over.  In the coming days and weeks we will be excited to offer more information and more assistance with your employment seeking needs.

Good luck and take care.
