River Metals Recycling’s (RMR) Newport, Kentucky recycling facility participated in the Buena Vista Park revitalization project. At the corner of 12th and Ann Street in Newport, contributors and volunteers created a walking path for the neighborhood, enhanced the children’s playground and planted trees, shrubs and flowers, all benefitting the Newport community in which RMR operates.
On April 23, 2016 River Metals Recycling along with three other businesses were recognized by Chris Bednar of the Newport Parks Renaissance Commission and Newport Major, Jerry Peluso for their commitment and contributions to the community.
