The Town of Fountain Hills and Republic Services recently unveiled new recycling cans to be installed in Fountain Park.

Republic Services has been providing trash removal services to the town since 2010 and on June 11, 2015, in conjunction with town officials, the firm debuted receptacles to be used for the town’s recycling initiative.

Mayor Linda Kavanagh said, “I thought it would be a great idea to have recycling cans at the park, since most people who walk the park have water bottles or other drink containers with them.

“I contacted Bob Bennett of Republic Services. Republic did not have any recycling cans specifically made for bottles. I didn’t want regular recycling cans because those would probably be used for trash. We needed the ones that looked like bottle recyclers.”

Bennett took the initiative to research the type of cans that he and Kavanagh discussed.

Republic Services then purchased and donated all of the cans that will be used in Fountain Park.
