Southeast Texas is heavily know for its refinery industry. However, a consequence of having so many refineries is the pollution and harm it causes on the environment. As I have grown up in the area, I have noticed the everlasting harm that has been done. Although, this doesn’t mean that the damage can not be eased for the future. 

As most people know, a simple and effective way to help improve the environment is to recycle. However, recycling has not been enforced or encouraged in the area with the exception of Lamar University and some other public locations like Target. If recycling was encouraged for neighborhoods as well, it would have a greater impact on the area. This could be made possible through Beaumont’s recycling center. 

Sadly, the recycling center has not been put to good use and will be closing down as a result. If surrounding SETX areas (not limiting to but including) like Beaumont, Nederland, and Port Arthur encouraged and had more options available to allow citizens to recycle, then the recycling center would gain enough business to stay open. Help keep SETX green and clean.
