"Put It In The Cart"

"Put it in the cart" is a pilot project that aims to get people to recycle and keep Greenville beautiful.

The folks in the West Meadowbrook section of Greenville received a free 96 gallon roll out cart to put their trash in.

Each cart cost about $70 dollars and about 150 of them were bought by the city. In all, the organization spent just over $7000 dollars on the carts.

A $10,000 dollar grant was awarded to the Keep Greenville Beautiful organization which kicked off its pilot program Saturday morning at two different housing projects in the area.

Organizers say the project will help save the environment and save landfill space.
