Saluda residents and visitors now have a place to discard recyclables in the downtown area.

The Polk County Appearance Commission hired two local artists, Kathleen Carson and Bill Crowell, to design and produce two containers to help visitors and residents of Saluda sort their trash from their recyclables. One of the containers is an entirely new green bin with a spout opening on top; the other is actually a new lid for one of the trash cans, indicating that this can is for recyclables.

Any recyclable materials – plastic, glass, cans and paper – can be placed in the recycling bins, which are located at each end of the downtown area.
