 BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. ? Sue Unger Green was honored by the Morgan County Solid Waste Authority for her efforts as a recycling volunteer during Friday's Morgan County Commission meeting.

Bennett Lentczner, chairman of the authority, presented Green with an award from the authority and the Recycling Coalition of West Virginia for her outstanding achievement in the community.

"It is a great privilege to name you as a true recycling champion," he said.

Lentczner told the commission that because of Green's efforts "and her belief that everybody should recycle," and in response from other county citizens, a permanent recycling facility site has been secured.

The site is on the west side of U.S. 522, north of Eddie's Tire Service. It is scheduled to open in late summer, Lentczner said.

Charlie Biggs, a member of the solid waste authority, said Green is the "number one (recycling) volunteer for Morgan County."

Green said she began working as a volunteer in the early 1990s, when Morgan County started recycling.
