Congratulations to Alleman on winning a second park bench for the community. Alleman residents collected 320.10 pounds of plastic grocery sacks for the month-long contest put on by Metro Waste Authority. The .72 pounds per capita was enough to put Alleman in the lead for per capita and an overall third place in most pounds collected behind Grimes and Bondurant. Alleman collected 23 percent more bags this year than when they won the overall pounds and per capita in 2017. Alleman wants to remind everyone to save their bags for next year’s contest, or to dispose of bags properly at grocery store recycle locations. Photo Contributed
