TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — Vigo County Solid Waste Management donated a bench recently in memory of Don Morris and his wife Cheryl Hart.
When the district was started back in 2003, Don Morris was one of the original members of the solid waste district.
The bench is made out of recycled plastic bottle caps and will be placed within the Heritage Trail.
Karrum Nasser, executive director for Vigo County Solid Waste Management, said it’s a way to honor a fallen friend.
“We thought one way that we could give back to the community, not only by giving back to the community, but honoring our good friend Don Morris and his wife Cheryl,” he said. “Today’s his birthday, which was fitting that’s why we wanted to honor him on his birthday as well.”
The bench has not been placed yet due to the weather.
