The bins will be conveniently located in high traffic areas. One bin will be placed in the Sutherlands parking lot. The other bin will reside on campus, on the north side of the Thompson Ringold building across from campus safety.
"We are excited to debut this service in the Maryville Area," said Lynette Harbin, program director for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Nodaway County. "Given the enormous success of this program in other BBBS markets, we expect to directly impact the local environment by helping the region responsibly dispose of thousands of pounds of used clothes."
"Our affiliation with the Kansas City chapter of Big Brothers Big Sisters is what made this possible. They will service the bins weekly and take items to their processing center." Although the items will be shipped out of the area, the economic impact will still be felt in Nodaway County as the revenue generated will be used to sustain and growth the local organization.
Big Brothers Big Sisters is the oldest and most effective child-mentoring agency in the country. It has over 400 affiliates throughout the United States. A Nodaway County office was established three years ago.
