City installs new recycling receptacles on Fishing Pier

Post Date:11/13/2019 5:08 PM

Fishing Pier Recycling Bins 11.13.19Thanks to generous funding provided by a grant from The Recycling Partnership, the City of Venice has installed six new public recycling and trash receptacles along the Venice Fishing Pier. The Fishing Pier is an extremely popular City park that extends out over the Gulf of Mexico. It is the City’s hope that these new receptacles will encourage visitors to recycle more and help protect this treasured, environmentally sensitive area by keeping trash out of our waterways. The total cost for the six receptacles was just under $10,000, and they were fully funded by The Recycling Partnership grant. This same grant is helping to fund the City’s new curbside recycling carts, which will be delivered to all Venice residents in January 2020.
