PADUCAH, Ky. - One local man is taking his own steps to help keep his community clean and eco friendly. "It's better to be ahead of the game than behind" said Merle Paschedag.
That's not the case in Paducah, so he decided made his own back yard the community recycle headquarters. "I've been recycling myself and I offered 2 my neighbors that I would take the trash to the dump" he said.
The idea's catching on; Paschedag has two trailers set up behind his home to collect recyclable goods, neighbors drop it off, he sorts it out and hauls what's left to Mason's Recycling at least twice a month. "I've been collecting cardboard and paper products that magazines and junk mail anything paper and beverage cans."
