Green Team provided the few recycle barrels that were left after the derecho blew them into the Greenbrier River from Camp Summers on the 29th of June, 2012. With the greatly increased number of water bottles being recycled after so many cases were handed out to those residents who had no water during the electrical failure, we have had to put a box trailer in Avis to hold the overflow of plastic being brought to the 6 bin recycle trailer on Mondays and Wednesdays. Please note that this #1 plastic is thinner than pop bottles and can be easily crushed with your bare hands. Please replace the cap tightly so the bottle will stay compacted and less air will be hauled to Ronceverte for recycling. Over the past few months, there has been a problem with bags full of! mixed garbage being left at the recycle trailer inAvis. Please be sure that you are sorting your clear, #1 plastic pop and water bottles separate d from the #2 milk and laundry jugs. Please step on large jugs and heavier plastics to compact them before putting them in the proper recycle bin. Most tub containers are # 5 and have to be picked out of the load. Please check the number on the bottom of each container and sort them properly, we take only # 1 plastic (mostly clear bottles) or # 2 plastic (not see through). Other plastics and container that are not empty please put in the garbage. Plastic caps no Kroger recycles plastic bags, please bring them there. Glass and styrofoam are not recyclable, neither are packaging materials, please put items that are not recyclable in with your garbage collection. Aluminum and tin cans both go in one bin in the trailer, if possible, please compact the empty, food free cans before leaving them for recycling. Newspapers and magazines go into the two bins in the very front of the trailer. Please do not put plastic bags in the recycle trailer bins. If the plastic bin is full, sorted bags of plastic can be left in the front of the trailer or in the rear, please leave the sides with the bin openings unblocked so others can get to the bins to sort their recycle. Never put recycle on top of the trailer, PLEASE! Flattened cardboard, office paper, and shredded paper will be accepted in the box trailer in Avis on Monday and Wednesday afternoons when the box trailer is unlocked and an attendant will be there to assist with loading these items. Leaving bags of recycle or bags of garbage when the 6 bin trailer is not present is considered littering and could result in a ticket and a fine of $50.00 or more. Please bring your recycle to Avis on Mondays and Wednesdays, or to the box trailer parked in front of Dillon's Store in Talcott. Please sort and compact your recycle correctly and thank you for doing such a good job recycling! S.C. Solid Waste Authority, Teri Clark,Executive Director (304) 466- longer need to be removed from 0695, recycle. tigl00ouse Beams News The Summer season of activities for the "Lighthouse Beams" (youth group of the Pence Springs Community Church) began with a trip to the outdoor swimming pool at Pipestem State Park, on June 23rd.
