Recycling containers at First Congo to be painted by local artist(s) to represent the feel of Cooper Young area of Midtown Memphis, TN.

Project Green Fork noticed how sad, dangerous and ineffective the recycling center at First Congo Church was and decided to do something about it. 

Thanks to Memphis & Shelby County Office of Sustainability, we now have 2 brand new containers to replace the ugly rusted out ones (below).

That's cool, right? But now we need the new containers painted to fit in with the vibe of Cooper Young. The money raised will go to a local artist and help pay for their supplies.

PGF will make NO MONEY from taking over the recycling center. We simply saw a need to make it more efficient and appealing and we pulled in some awesome community partners to help us do it. 

Please be another awesome community partner and help us make these containers look great. We've added some nice rewards to entice you to donate.  Check 'em out and help us fund this project.
