Ferdie to Bob

    Dear Bob, here are some photos of my life here on the campus of Concordia Seminary. I love kids, working with the grounds crew, swimming, playing with my dog friends, and especially my own family people.

    We mix everything up in our recycle container, but we don't know if they actually separate it. I don't trust the recipients. I would have more faith if it was separated like Maryland. Can you check with Waste Management?

    Frank, I have made 3 trips to the recycling separation plant in Earth City with Clayton's public works people because I'm on a board which deals with "green" issues. And I can tell you they do separate and it is a fascinating process to witness. I'd go again it was that interesting. http://rmcrecycle.com/08facilities.htm

    Here are links to two blog posts I did from visits there. If you ever get a chance to go out there you would not regret it.

    Thanks for double checking it. I did not have a clue.

    Curbside Collection Problems

    On NPR, Samantha McBride (prof at Columbia U) "emphasized that the value of glass is destroyed when it is included in co-mingled curbside collections" says NPR. She says, "It is going to be going to very low end uses as aggregate or road base. And there's absolutely no reason why glass could not be treated differently, either separately collected or better yet routed back for refill using a strong deposit system such as they have in Europe"
