Old Fire Station in Pensacola, Florida to be Used for Recycling

Article by Louis Cooper of the Pensacola News Journal (

The old Milton Fire Station is going to be "recycled" into a recycling center.

The Milton City Council recently approved plans that will turn the site of the old fire house on Bruner Street into a place for citizens to drop off their recyclable materials and for the Santa Rosa Clean Community System to show off how recycled materials can be used.

On the south end of the parcel, there will be four recyclables receptacles where Milton residents may drop of their recyclable materials, according to John Tonkin, executive director of the Clean Community System

"The park on the north end will be a recycle innovation station," Tonkin said. "We have received a grant from UPS for $10,000 which will purchase recycled plastic benches, garbage cans and picnic tables. It will also include examples of our recycled glass in the landscape."

The UPS grant will also pay for a glass collection container which will allow citizens to segregate their glass by colors. That will build on a $102,800 grant from IMPACT 100 Pensacola Bay Area. In 2010, the Clean Community System used that grant to buy a glass pulverizer to begin the glass recycling program that produces.

Segregating glass by color will allow the Clean Community System to meet customer demands for single-color glass gravel product, Tonkin said.
