Does anyone know if Cleveland offers curb side recycling with regualr trash pick up?
The PD had a nice little article about deconstructing abandoned houses rather than demolishing them. I really hope this practice catches on. So many great old building materials that can be salvaged.http://blog.cleveland.com/business/2008/07/_scott_shaw_the_plain.html
One thing I'm curious about as one of the people in the test-pilot recycling program for Cleveland. Since the "carts" used in place of garbage cans are much larger than most standard garbage cans, we can usually skip a week. Now supposing there are plenty of others in the same boat, do you suppose there's any measurable fuel savings from the trucks not having to idle at every single house?
Nine months after a fire nearly destroyed Rumpke’s recycling plant in St. Bernard, construction has started on a $32 million, 85,000-square-foot facility. The plant is scheduled to be fully operational on Nov. 1, Rumpke officials said Thursday.Rumpke officials visited 10 of the top recycling centers across the nation and Canada before developing the project. The facility – being built on the same site as the center that burned, at 5535 Vine St. – will be able to process up to 15,000 tons of materials per month, more than doubling the 7,300 tons handled by the previous system.The facility’s new technology will allow the company to process and make four types of paper compared to two in the previous facility, said Steve Sargent, Rumpke’s corporate director of recycling. The center also will have an improved glass removal and cleaning system. That will allow Rumpke to expand sales to companies that use large amounts of glass such as bars and restaurants.“We’ve built capacity for the future,” Jeff Rumpke said. “We’re going to be looking for more material.”
