Peter Aman is offering to recycle his supporters’ yard signs after failing to make the Dec. 5 runoff election to be Atlanta’s next mayor.
Aman came in fourth behind Cathy Woolard, Mary Norwood and Keisha Lance Bottoms. Norwood and Bottoms will be on the ballot on Dec. 5.
The former mayoral candidate sent an email to supporters offering to collect the yard signs and put them to good use.
“My good friend and campaign treasurer is the president of an Atlanta-based company that will turn our plastic campaign yard signs into fuel –gasoline, diesel, etc. They divert a wide range of waste plastics – like political signs – from landfills,” Aman said in the email. “Drop off your yard sign at the CHaRM (Center for Hard to Recycle Materials) and Nexus Fuels will convert the plastic into fuel. The Center is part of Live Thrive Atlanta, a non-profit focused on sustainability. The drop-off address is 1110 Hill St. SE, Atlanta, Ga. 30315. Feel free to encourage your friends and neighbors to drop off other yard signs.
“If you need someone to pick up your signs, just reply to this email with your address and we’ll pick them up through Friday. Thank you for helping us all be environmentally responsible.”
