Leading the Green

While admitting he had to be dragged into green interests, Mayor Pat Patterson said those who led him that way were right and he challenged the community to reach a 50 percent recycling goal by next year. The city currently has close to 41 percent recycling rates based on the number of residences within city limits. Patterson also offered the university a recycling bin that will be picked up for free by the city. The Mayor was on hand along with Chancellor Dan Jones to honor local sustainability leaders.

All this week, The EAGLE is looking at different aspects of how Oxford and the University of Mississippi are moving toward a more sustainable community.
