A group of young friends recently gathered for a party, but it wasn't the usual kind one thinks of when the guests are young and basically carefree.
This group of girls spent their time "packing," but they were not focusing on personal items or fun things for a day of frivolity. They were packing shoeboxes, though the contents had nothing to do with footwear.
The party, held at the home of Addison Davis, included first-sixth-grade girls who were participating in an international mission.
Board members of the Saline County Regional Solid Waste Management District officially ended the black box recycling program during a monthly meeting on Wednesday.
â€śThe black boxes were always meant as a temporary solution,â€ť executive director Michael GrappĂ© said. â€śAnd now the lifespan of the black boxes is coming to an end.â€ť
The black box program began a little over a year ago as a temporary solution until curbside recycling could come into place.
