The Maine Resource Recovery Association launches a new statewide program called Keep Maine Clean on the new edition of Wildlife, airing for the first time tonight. Shelby Wright, Director of Communications and Development for the MRRA, is our guest on this edition of the TV talk show that I host with James Cote.
Wildfire airs on Time Warner cable station 9 on Tuesdays at 7 pm, Thursdays at 6:30 pm, and Sundays at 9:30 am. You can also access the new show, and previous shows, online at www.vstv.me.
Keep Maine Clean will build an army of good folks who pick up trash along our roads and highways, something I’ve been doing for years in Mount Vernon. Regular readers of this column will know that I’ve been writing about road slobs, and the proposed Keep Maine Clean program, for years, since Tom Doak of the Small Woodland Owners Association of Maine and I came up with the idea.
The Maine Resource Recovery Association is a nonprofit organization headquartered in Bangor whose membership includes 162 Maine towns and cities along with recycling and waste-management businesses. It’s a perfect place to house the program. James and I are working with Shelby on this project.
You’ll learn more about MRRA and Keep Maine Clean by watching Wildfire. And I hope you will join us in this important project. You can sign up by emailing Shelby at firstname.lastname@example.org. And please join our Keep Maine Clean group on Facebook.
