Ashlanders appreciate our area's natural beauty and natural resources, and want to preserve them for the future.
Every individual's action of preventing waste, reusing everything possible, and recycling becomes a cumulative part of the solution toward protecting our rivers, lakes and streams; keeping toxic materials out of the environment; and protecting our air quality.
Reducing waste and using resources wisely saves our natural resources, creates jobs, and provides for future generations.
Local governments, schools and businesses, along with concerned citizens, are working together to recycle more and to adopt environmentally sustainable buying practices.
WHEREAS, Ashlanders and Oregonians are recycling more than ever.
NOW, THEREFORE, the City Council and Mayor on behalf of the citizens of Ashland, hereby proclaim November 8 - 15, 2003 as
"RECYCLING AWARENESS WEEK"
in Ashland and encourage each Ashland citizen to practice essential habits of reducing, reusing and recycling in their homes, workplaces and schools.
Dated this 4th day of November, 2003.
Barbara Christensen, City Recorder
Alan DeBoer, Mayor
