When First Lady Dianne Bentley still had a Tuscaloosa address, she participated in city-wide recycling efforts. Each Thursday she would collect cans, plastics, and other recyclable materials to place in her blue bin. Being the organized woman that she is, she would take time to wash out each item and make sure it was ready for pick up. After she loaded her bin, she would place it in her red wagon and carry it up to the road to set out by her mailbox.

In Montgomery, curb side pickup is not an option but there are many centers that will take recycled items. Mrs. Bentley is enthusiastic and would like to recycle the products used at the Governor's Mansion. She no longer needs her Red Rider wagon to pull it to the road but she will do her part to make a difference.

Not only does recycling help the environment but it also saves money. In other words, if we recycle more, we can save more. In our state, money is tight and budgets have been cut, but everyone can save a little if they learn to recycle. So no matter how old or young you are, you have a voice and can make a change. Recycling can make a difference.
