“Outstanding service. They were extremely careful delivering the extra large container into our driveway.” -- A. L. GARNER
Jamie explains, “the destination just depends on where the highest demand is, or where the best price can be found.” Much of the manufacturing of plastics is located in China and other Asian countries, so container ships returning to their point of origin are filled with our mixed recycling.That said, Jamie encourages consumers to contemplate the meaning of the slogan “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle,” and emphasize the first two sets of actions. “It is important to remember that the ‘Three Rs’ is a hierarchy. The act of simply tossing something into your mixed recycling cart does not automatically make you a ‘good’ person. You’ve simply out-sourced your problem. If you are truly interested in having an impact, start thinking about ways you can reduce your consumption, and reuse materials whenever possible.”Due to Jamie’s negotiations with Trex, Ashlanders now have a clear, concrete action they can take. Rather than throwing all soft plastics into the combined trash, we can separate our bags, bubble wrap, etc. into two categories of plastic: 1. clear or 2. containing some type of color (see Trex website for a full list of acceptable soft plastics: www.trex.com/recycling/recycling-partnerships/). Ashlanders can then bring these soft plastics down to the Ashland Recycling Center on Water Street at Van Ness (open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday).Ashland resident, author and anthropologist Nina Egert has been a lay environmentalist since the early 1970s.

Fees are automatically deducted from monthly revenue generated by sales of bags at local retail outlets and provides for manufacturing, distribution and account reconciliation for all points of purchase locations.” In other matters, the council will consider issuing an outdoor dining permit to 18 Below after having postponed taking a second, final vote July 3. The council took a first vote to approve the request June 5. Councilors also will consider approving a lease of land to Peter MacDonald of Ontarget Systems LLC at the city-owned Robert LaFleur airport for constructing a 44-by-44-foot aircraft hangar. The lease rate would be $350 and would increase 15 percent every five years, according to the resolution. The council will consider appropriating $3,451 in proceeds from the airport equipment public auction and $1,204 from airport fence demolition toward the replacement of an airport plow truck with equipment. The allocation of the proceeds received will alleviate the gap in funding from previously appropriated funds and the actual cost of the truck’s full replacement with proper outfitting of equipment, according to the order. A note from Airport Manager Randy Marshall to the mayor and council says the airport’s plow truck was destroyed last winter and insurance in the amount of $15,400 and the appropriation of Airport Business Park funds totaling $15,950 would not cover the cost of the replacement truck and plow equipment. A deficit of $2,683 is anticipated, according to Marshall. Councilors also will consider taking part in a cooperative purchasing program for winter road salt sponsored by the state Department of Transportation, and approving a recommendation to buy salt from New England Salt Co., of Bangor, at a unit price of $51.06 per ton, for a total of $137,862 for 2,700 tons.

Even the backdrop, a painting featuring colors of the ocean, was a discarded item repurposed for the project."After almost three decades of creating art with my students, this piece was extra special," said Ms. Swan. "The artwork makes a strong statement of love for and destruction of our waters and how items that comfort us and make our lives 'easier' are sadly found in our seas."Fabien Cousteau, an aquanaut, ocean conservationist, and documentary filmmaker related to the famous Jacques Yves-Cousteau, joined New York State Assemblywoman Melissa Miller, district officials, staff members and students for an unveiling of the project at the middle school on Dec. 14. They shared memories and reflections from the beach cleanup and described how the artistic concept came to fruition, and Assemblywoman Miller provided each student with a Certificate of Merit. "I think the students made something really nice out of it," said Cousteau. "It's very representative of this community, which is concerned for and cares about the environment."Photos courtesy of Long Beach Public Schools:(Image 1) Long Beach Middle School secretary Barbara Vahey, Isabella Silvestri, Principal Paul Romanelli, Assemblywoman Melissa Miller, art teacher Laura Swan, Board of Education Vice President Perry Bodnar, Fabien Cousteau and Scott Bochner with students Lorelai Corbett, Charlise Quigley, Nikkita Kissoon, Maryn Ascher, Matthew Raubuck and Abigail Philips.

Scanga said.Artists Mierle Laderman Ukeles and Larry Racioppo also have a spotlight -- both specialize in capturing the urban landscape, which often includes waste, on film and sculpture.The exhibit will grow, too: Additional artists will be invited to contribute pieces to the Reliquary’s backyard in April.“We’re burying ourselves in garbage,” Scanga said. “When you see this exhibit, it won’t take long before you buy yourself a reusable water bottle. We really wanted to give people a sense of, ‘wow, this is a lot of stuff we have to deal with.’ ”“NYC Trash! Past, Present & Future” opened on Nov. 2 and continues through April 29. The Reliquary is open Thursdays through Sundays, from noon to 6 p.m. Admission is $5.
