During a cleanup effort in North Memphis on Saturday, Browning-Ferris Industries officials announced that BFI and Belz Enterprises have agreed to a three-year extension of the lease for BFIs recyclery at 1245 Morehead. The recyclery employs 25 people, most of whom are from surrounding North Memphis neighborhoods. The 50,000-square-foot plant opened in 1991 and serves a 150-mile radius of Memphis. During the event, more than 100 volunteers helped remove litter and tree limbs from sidewalks, streets and vacant lots. BFI also presented $1,000 scholarships to two Manassas High School seniors in honor of the North Memphis Civic Club.
