air jordan 12 retro taxi white black taxi stream recycling a must Jan
Sioux Falls is launching an advertising campaign to educate residents about the importance of recycling and new rules air jordan 12 retro taxi white black taxi that allow people to combine everything including plastics, cardboard, office air jordan 5 v retro black metallic silver fire red papers and newspapers in one bin.
The single stream recycling ordinance, which the City Council approved last summer, goes into effect Jan. 1, and is expected to increase recycling efforts in Sioux Falls, said Brandi Rensch, environmental sustainability technician. It applies to homeowners and people in apartments.
Letters also will go out with water bills aOlernKienOP air jordan 11 pantone university blue white black 2014 Jordan Future Custom next month to explain changes. Many of the city’s aOlernKienOP air jordan xi gamma blue black gamma blue varsity maize Screening for Down 30 garbage haulers already use the single stream method, and Rensch said her office has assisted the few companies that did not already use it with the change.
Advanced Recycling Systems hired four people and made some modifications to accommodate the single air jordan xx3 black carolina white stream method in September and will move to a larger facility with new equipment in March, co owner Gerald Cressman said. Millenium aOlernKienOP Air Jordan 18s Time for baseball team to take action Recycling always has accommodated single stream recycling, and spokesman Shaun Feilmeier hopes the city’s mandate will start a regional trend.
“Single stream is so easy, you put it all in one container, sort it from your trash,” he aOlernKienOP air jordan 11 xi retro cool greys Jahlil Okafor another big score for Duke said. “It’s aOlernKienOP air jordan v grape white new emerald grape ice blue They deserved it easier than deciding which bin gets what, what’s recyclable aOlernKienOP air jordan xx3 white black red Frantic Search Underway for Missing Boy and isn’t.”
Recyclables must go in a sealed container, and some garbage haulers provide those, while others require residents to purchase them, Rensch said.
Dakota Disposal, for example, ordered new containers for customers and started delivering them in November, Rensch said.
“Just in that time frame, (Dakota Disposal) has seen an increase in recycling,” she said.
The city landfill bans office paper, corrugated cardboard, plastic containers No. 1 and 2 (which includes plastic bottles and milk jugs), metal containers, magazines, newspapers and bulk rate mail.
The landfill also bans other items that cannot go in single stream recycling, including automobile bodies, oils, hazardous materials, yard waste, acid batteries and medical waste.
The city encourages recycling glass even though it’s not banned from the city landfill, though Rensch said people should check to see whether haulers accept it. Millennium and Advanced both accept glass, and many haulers do, too.
Lisa Ferguson, co owner of Falls Garbage Service, has been using single stream recycling since the business began five years ago and thinks a city mandate is a good idea.
“It’s helped us big time,” she said. “I’d say we air jordan 12 cool grey orange 2012 save about 15 tons a month from going into the landfill.”
Ferguson also said customers like the convenience, and some aOlernKienOP air jordan 11 retro concord 2011 World Man Walking have switched to Falls Garbage Service because it does single stream recycling.
“It makes it so much easier,” she said.
Thirty second radio ads air jordan 18 white sport royal will be aired on Backyard Broadcasting stations, and 60 second commercials will be on Results Radio. The city is working with Midcontinent to produce aOlernKienOP air jordan 11 gamma blue 2013 Running iPhone App to Become Part of the Worl a 30 second commercial. Rensch said the budget for fourth quarter totals $3,060 and officials are working on a full year contract air jordan 5 fire red black 2013 for 2013.
“It’s important because there are still people who don’t know what single stream is, and they’re not aware there are actually items banned from the landfill,” she said. “It’s also important to increase the quality of recycling we see to start introducing more products into single stream recycling.”
Dirty diapers, paper towels and dirty toilet paper sometimes are placed in with recycling, Rensch said, which air jordan 8 viii retro black chrome can contaminate the whole bag and turn it to trash.
Feilmeier, of Millennium, aOlernKienOP air jordan 1 23501 levi denim pack Where to buy a Wedding Dresses Online said education is important, and the company might do it’s own media campaign next year. Millennium also educates at schools and public events so people know what can be recycled.
Both Millennium and Advanced Recycling, for example, Jordan Retro 1 accept plastics 1 7 (including plastic bags and aOlernKienOP air jordan iv 4 retro isaiah doernbecher db charty Scripts waiting to happe other food containers), although all are not banned at air jordan 18 white red the landfill.
Millennium has the most problems with air jordan v black new emerald grape ice black medical waste such as needles, lancets and prescription bottles and dirty diapers. Those items cannot be recycled, so staff members need to remove it and take special care not to harm themselves on sharp medical items, Feilmeier said.
“We spend a lot of money on safety equipment for it. It’s a problem industry wide,” he said.
Though Cressman said the source separated method is easier for recycling employees, his company will accommodate city requirements and made a large investment on new equipment for its larger facility at 3509 W. Teem Drive.
