The Centre County Recycling and Refuse Authority, along with the Centre Region Council of Governments and the Borough of State College, held an awards luncheon in conjunction with America Recycles Day on Thursday, November 13. Sixty of the area’s best green businesses, schools, and organizations were honored with the Green Business Partner Award. SCPC was one of only two churches that received the award. The only church, we were recognized for our efforts in recycling and sustainability, including composting organic materials (kitchen waste, bathroom paper towels, and yard debris); recycling of paper, glass, cardboard, cans, and plastic bottles; and inclusion of creation-care topics in programming for children, youth, and adults.
