River Metals Recycling Offers Incentives for 9th District Residents

June 8, 2015

Louisville – Councilman Bill Hollander (D-9) is announcing an opportunity for 9th District Residents to “get green for going green”.  River Metals Recycling (RMR) and the 9th District are partnering to offer incentives for 9th District residents to recycle metal from June 22-27, which corresponds with junk pick up in the District.

            “This is an ongoing partnership with RMR that offers 9th District residents an opportunity to get additional incentives for recycling,” said Hollander, “RMR is a great partner and we hope that this event encourages people to recycle metal items instead of throwing them out with junk pick up.”

            To receive the incentive, residents should print out the coupon attached to the District 9 eNews and bring it to River Metals Recycling at 2045 River Road between Monday, June 22 and Saturday, June 27.  The coupon entitles residents to $10 per net ton extra for sheet metal, appliances, and other ferrous scrap and 5 cents per pound extra for aluminum cans, copper, and other nonferrous metal.

            Part of River Metals Recycling’s culture and philosophy revolves around being a good neighbor in the communities in which they do business.  River Metals Recycling’s Neal Coulardot stated, “We make it easy to recycle metal at our environmentally sound facility.  We are proud to partner with the 9th District and offer community members a great way to make money recycling metal, while helping to preserve and protect our environment.”  RMR’s River Road metal recycling facility offers the general public metal recycling that is fast, friendly, and makes it easy to “go green.”  RMR is open Monday – Friday from 7:30 – 4:00, and Saturday from 7:30 – noon.  The phone number is (502) 585-5331.

            For more information on the incentive event, or for 9th District residents to receive a coupon, please contact Councilman Hollander’s office at 574-1109 or email [email protected].
