Jackson Disposal will be turning the town of Aledo pink this month by replacing its green recycling totes to pink.

Carol Jackson, owner of Jackson Disposal, said she purchased 400 of the pink totes to be used around the city of Aledo for recycling. For each tote purchased, $5 went to the American Cancer Society. Jackson plans to replace existing totes in the city sometime in April.

Jackson said she is expanding her recycling business and has purchased a new baler and conveyer belt to assist in the process of recycling. Jackson Disposal is located just outside of Seaton.
