RANKIN COUNTY, MS (Mississippi News Now) - They come in all ages. This one happens to be nine-years-old. And she’s done something all out of proportion to her age. She has started a recycling program in her neighborhood and it has not only caught on, but is spreading to other areas.
Becca Blair is making her usual Monday rounds through the Saddle Wood neighborhood near the Reservoir, picking up full bags of recyclables and leaving empty bags to be picked up next week. Keep the Reservoir Beautiful gladly supplies the bags.

Being an industrious youngster, Becca made up a flier telling neighbors that if they wanted to recycle, she would come around and pick up every week and keep them supplied with fresh bags.
So now she’s up to about 30 or so neighbors on her recycle bandwagon; so many that she graduated from collecting on a four-wheeler to her grandmother helping out with her pickup truck.
They take their collection to the recycling bin at the Reservoir Fire Station. And by the way, this bin is open to the public, not just Becca and her grandmother.
