Race recycling at the 2009 Silver Comet Half-Marathon a great success, even if it was a bit wet!

Thank you to everyone who volunteered to make race recycling at the Silver Comet Half-Marathon a success! B Green Services and our team of volunteers did a fantastic job recycling paper cups and plastic water bottles and ended up keeping mounds of trash out of a landfill!

Review of the Doug Kessler 10K race in Sandy Springs: great race, but no recycling!!

I’m tired of seeing Atlanta road races not recycle (like the Doug Kessler 5K and 10K this past weekend). Now, race recycling is coming to metro Atlanta – we’re going to start working with B Green Services to provide race recycling services around the city. Emil Bekyarov heads B Green Services, which currently provides complete recycling solutions to hotels and restaurants around Atlanta, and we’re going to work together to institute race recycling at the Silver Comet Half-Marathon in conjunction with Dana Greene of Get Fit Atlanta!
