2013 America Recycles Day


2013 America Recycles Day

KCB again approached the City Manager to allow KCB to "Put Plastic in It's Place" for one week. Photo The amount of #1 and #2 plastic collected soon filled several containers and "PPIIP" continued to the end of the year. The City decided to continue this initiative, but the old bailing equipment was not effective. Because the City and KCB had been so successful in the plastic recycling mission, we applied for and received a grant for new equipment. What had been litter and trash the City paid to haul away is now recycled. The funds have become a new revenue stream for the City, and the can-clutter has improved. KCB had long wanted to recycle electronic waste. With the help technology recyclers, KCB was overjoyed to fill a small truck. Six months later calls came in wanting to know when the next collection would take place. The second collection the community filled two trucks. KCB began having bi-annual pick ups. By then the TV revolution began and the current haulers did not pick up TV's without charge. The City took on that responsibility. Haulers had to get two more trucks to handle the E-waste and the City hauled two truck loads of TV's away.
