The City of Sedalia received an Honorable Mention at the Missouri Municipal League’s 8th Annual Innovation Award in the large cities category for their Recycle Center at MML’s annual conference in Branson on Sept. 17.
The city of Sedalia and Cooperative Workshops, Inc., entered into an agreement on Jan. 2, 2010, to establish a recycling center located at 2800 B West Main Street. Prior to The Recycle Center’s opening, the residents of Sedalia and Pettis County did not have access to local recycling. Since June 1, 2010, The Recycle Center has collected and processed more than 4,044,925 pounds of material.
The MML Innovation Awards program seeks to spotlight successful municipal programs. All submitted projects are cataloged in a database that is available on the MML website at www.mocities.com/?page=InnovationAwards. The database provides MML members with a resource for new ideas.
The Missouri Municipal League was organized in 1934, working to strengthen Missouri cities through unity and cooperation. With more than 670 member municipalities, MML promotes the interest, welfare and closer relations among Missouri communities in order to improve local government and administration throughout the state.
