Neighbors! Let me share with you the first (of many?) recycling victories! During the last few runs to take our bins of glass in (near Miracle Mile and Flowing Wells) there were no containers with lids or caps and all were acceptably clean. Very good.
Now what we have to work on is to remain aware that the yellow dumpsters should be where we recycle metal, plastic (but not the dreaded but ubiquitous grocery bags), paper and cardboard. Most cardboard boxes can be easily flattened and this leaves more room for the rest of whatever needs to go into this dedicated dumpster. We do receive a good deal of cardboard here at River Grove.
Perhaps it is easier to remember what NOT to put in this dumpster: no glass, no garbage waste, no yard waste. These things go into the blue dumpsters.
Dumpster! What is in a word? Here is the Wikipedia entry:
The word "dumpster", first used commercially in 1936, came from the Dempster-Dumpster system of mechanically loading the contents of standardized containers onto garbage trucks, which was patented by Dempster Brothers in 1935. The containers were called Dumpsters, a blending of the company's name with the word dump. The Dempster Dumpmaster, which became the first successful front-loading garbage truck that used this system, popularized the word.
Next month: more on plastics!
