Sampson nets top recycling honor


The N.C. Department of Agriculture and Consumer Sciences named Sampson County as the John L. Smith Plastic Pesticide Container Recycling Award winner for 2014. The award recognizes counties that operated outstanding pesticide container recycling programs for farmers and commercial pesticide applicators. At a recent Board of Commissioners meeting, Chairman Billy Lockamy presented Cooperative Extension director Eileen Coite and agent Della King, who coordinated the program, with the commemorative plaque. A $2,000 check was also awarded by the state in honor of the county’s accomplishments. Sampson County set a record in North Carolina with 48,073 pounds of plastic collected, with zero rejected containers, evidencing a remarkably effective program for protecting the environment. According to state Environmental Programs Manager Henry Wade, the county may use the money ‘in whatever way it deems fit’ to further local pesticide recycling efforts. ‘We applaud your county’s efforts to provide … an effective environmental program for recycling plastic pesticide containers,’ Wade stated. ‘We congratulate you and others in Sampson County who have made this program so successful.’
