GAINESVILLE - Two Hall County recycling cans got a new look recently thanks to Hall County Resource Recovery's ''Adopt-a-Can'' program.

Brenau University's Art Department is among the participants in the program, which allows groups to ''adopt'' roll-off recycling receptacles and paint them in order to increase awareness about recycling in the community.

In addition to Brenau's Art Department, the Citizen Advisory Committee for the Hall County Green Alliance also submitted a design in order to ''adopt'' a can of their own.

The ''Adopt-a-Can'' program is a continuance of previous marketing efforts by Hall County in order to promote recycling. Two single-stream receivers at Hall County's compactor sites were painted pink last October in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month. The receivers have rotated between Hall County's busiest compactor sites, promoting breast cancer awareness while also encouraging residents to protect the environment.
