Wyandotte Nation community honored for recycling efforts


An Oklahoma tribe is being recognized as a clean community.  The Wyandotte Nation received the recognition at a ceremony on Monday.

Officials from the Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality were on hand to present a certificate to the Tribe for its work on recycling, including tire recycling.

The community holds many free tire recycling events throughout the year and officials say the large turnouts show they're working.

"It's sort of like a library forgiveness program," says program specialist Ferella March.  "People are able to bring those tires somewhere where they know something is going to be done with those tires.  They're not going to be put into a dump.  They're going to be recycled."

Along with the tire recycling days the Wyandotte Tribe recently opened a recycling center that accepts cardboard, paper, and plastics.
