Who we are: Connie Mattingly is the new owner of Living Green, and Jordan Paden runs the routes and works face-to-face with customers. “I thought this was an awesome ideal and a great business opportunity so I bought the company,” Mattingly said. “It has been in service for almost a year. It was started by other Shelby County residents, and they [the previous owners] had it running I just took it over.”

What we do: Living Green tries to offer Shelby Countians a simple way to recycle. The customers put their clean recycling in one bin (provided by the company for a one-time fee of $12) and places it on the curb, and Living Green employees pick it up and separate it. The charge is $14.95 a month for residents. Commercial rates will be determined on volume.  

What we say: “I haven’t always been recycling precisely,” Mattingly says, “but, this is such an easy way to help the earth, not only for our children’s future but for our own. It’s so simple and it makes me feel good that I am doing my part in making it better for future generations. I want my customers to feel the same way.”
