Wondering why the paper/aluminum can recycling containers have disappeared?

Lion's Recycling Program Halted

After recycling paper and aluminum cans for over 30 years in Palm Coast, the Lion's recycling program came to an abrupt halt last week when Publix on Belle Terre and Palm Coast Parkway asked for the recycling containers to be removed from their parking lot.

The Lions are seeking an alternate location for the recycling containers for this important community project which allows the public to support the work of the Lions and their charitable projects by simply dropping off their recyclable paper and aluminum cans. The recycling project started out with a paper drive on the last Saturday of the month, when the Lions would travel in their cars and trucks through the streets of Palm Coast, picking up papers that the supporters would leave out on the curb. The Saturday paper drive was discontinued a few years ago due to fewer and fewer people participating, a declining and aging membership and the increased price of gas. So the program became dependent upon the supporters dropping off their paper and cans at the recycling containers at the Palm Harbor Shopping Center and the Publix's on Belle Terre. With the construction at the Palm Harbor Shopping Center, the Lions had to remove that recycling container and were left with only those on Belle Terre. Now those containers have  been removed.

Lions members are unpaid volunteers who help the blind, as well as, provide funding for eye exams, eyeglasses and hearing aids for those individuals who cannot afford them, in order that these individuals can retain the gift of sight and hearing. In addition, working with the Florida Lions Foundation, the Lions help those in need of eye surgeries to preserve their sight. 100% of the contributions donated to the Lions go to support these projects.

The Lions would like to continue this important community service program but need your help. If you are able to help the Lions in relocating their recycling containers, please call 386-445-5040 or 386-447-1417.
