WICHITA, Kansas - The founders of PRo-Kansas Miller Recycling are looking back on what's become their legacy.
Now in their nineties, Paul and Margaret Miller met and married as teachers.
They would later become huge advocates of what was then a little-known practice: recycling.
"I think a lot of people were interested, they just hadn't known what to do about it," remembers Margaret Miller.
"It was before there was anything like this, and they were very persistent. They collected things in all kinds of weather, they stuck through it, but it was essentially the Millers with their dedication to recycling," explains Roger Lyon, the operations director at the PRo-Kansas Miller Recycling Center.
In 2001 the 'Plastics Recycling of Kansas' became a not-for-profit corporation.
It was known as PRo-Kansas Recycling.
"There's nine parking spaces, and they can all come in usually and park and unload and not hang around too long and leave then. Sometimes there's too many to park," says Margaret.
They take everything from plastic to aluminum to paper to batteries and more.
Experts at the center say recycling reduces pollution, saves natural resources and adds to the economy.
"I don't know what recycling in Wichita would look like without the Millers. What would the US look like without Christopher Columbus or Thomas Jefferson. I don't know but it would be different," says Roger.
PRo-Kansas Miller Recycling is located at 725 East Clark Street.
They're open Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.
