New recycling center coming to west valley

Posted on June 19, 2009. Filed under: Boomer Interests | Tags: , , , |

Melissa Quillard and Jerry Hoss of Waste Management take us through the logic of recycling as a responsible choice and the simplicity of their single-stream recycling method. Seasoned recyclers (and those of us not used to recycling but willing to make the effort!) will appreciate the good info about the new plant coming to Surprise, Arizona.  According to a “did you know?” on the their website, Waste Management has saved enough energy to power 116,000 homes for one year by recycling 232,000 tons of plastics. Makes one say “forever in a landfill — no more!” the next time one is about to toss a plastic water bottle in the trash.  Okay, it’s not “one” — it’s me!!  Props to Waste Management’s Lori Somers in Southern California for making this connection!
