The Farmer's Market Recycling Center has been made possible through the efforts of many contributing partners. Gaston County Solid Waste and Recycling was awarded grant assistance from the North Carolina Department of Pollution Prevention and Environmental Assistance to supplement a portion of the cost to construct and open a new recycling center in Gaston County. The City of Gastonia including General Services, Public Works, and Keep Gastonia Beautiful made contributions of property, utilities, landscaping, and many hours of hard work to help provide such a facility to residents of Gaston County. Staffing of the recycling center is provided by Cornerstone Christian Center. All parties involved are dedicated to providing a quality location for Gaston County residents who are environmentally conscious and actively participating in recycling.
