Since joining the Recycling Committee, I have been asked the same question countless times: “Why do I have to sort my recycling into two different bins if it is just going to be put into one truck?” The answer is simple and complex at the same time. We, the town of Hudson, have a contract with Pinard Waste Systems for the collection of trash and recycling. We pay $78.49/ton for trash removal and $0.00/ ton for recycling. The trash and recycling are collected weekly on the same day of the week as designated for your street. The trash is picked up using an automated process. You are required to use the trash toter supplied by Pinard so their truck can pick up and dump the toter properly. The recycling portion of the contract is for dual-stream collection.
That means that the items must be separated into two containers: one for paper and one for co-mingled items so they can be picked up by the dual-stream recycling collection truck. It’s simple, right? You put out the recycling and the truck driver picks it up.
can either ‘tag’ your bin or remove and transfer the offending item to your trash can. This might be the answer to two different questions I received from residents on Election Day. The first one was “When did we stop recycling Styrofoam?” and the second was “What happens to items in the recycling bin that are deemed non-recyclable?” Remember that we do not currently
recycle Styrofoam. If you get a ‘tag’ on your bin, take a moment to review why you received it. Earth Day
The complication arises when Pinard, at their discretion, according to the contract, sends the single-stream truck to collect the recycling. If they send the single-stream truck, both paper and co-mingled items are put into that truck and must go to a separate facility to be resorted at Pinard’s expense. It does not cost the town of Hudson anything when this happens, but I know that this is not the point for most people. Most people don’t like the fact that they have made the effort to separate their recycling just to have it end up mixed together. Why, you might ask, would Pinard send the single-stream truck instead of the dual-stream truck? The answer is simple; on occasion, the dual-stream truck is unavailable to come to Hudson. Pinard is obligated to pick up the recycling and so they are allowed to use either the single-stream or the dual-stream truck at their cost. We, the residents, do not have that option. We must sort our
According to Wikipedia, on April 22, 1970, Earth Day marked the beginning of the modern environmental movement. Approximately 20 million Americans participated. Thousands of colleges and universities organized protests against the deterioration of the environment. Groups that had been fighting against oil spills, polluting factories and power plants, raw sewage, toxic dumps, pesticides, freeway and expressway revolts, the loss of wilderness, and air pollution suddenly realized they shared common values. On this, the 41st anniversary of Earth Day, I would like to thank my English teacher, Mr. Roberts, for participating and bringing Earth Day into our classroom that day. He set the example for me that one person can make a difference in the lives of others. How are you going to celebrate Earth Day this year?

Recycling Scavenger Hunt open to all students in Hudson’s elementary schools during the month of April. The Recycling Committee has designed the Scavenger Hunt for students to explore a variety of recycling Websites. With the help and support of parents and teachers, the
recycling before we put it out to be picked up. Imagine the confusion that would occur if you put all of your recycling in one bin and the dual-stream truck arrived at your house to pick it up. This example would result in you receiving an orange sticker on your bin and your recycled items not being collected that week. So now you see what I mean when I say it’s both simple and complicated. The important thing to remember is to remove the items that can be recycled from the trash stream and to keep sorting your recycling items. Thank you for your efforts to reduce the amount of trash going to the landfill. To quote Jack G., the Nottingham West School winner of the 2010 Earth Day Slogan Contest, ”Hudson, a town to treasure, not to trash!” Did You Know? If you put non-recyclable items into your recycle bin, the driver
children will focus on the importance of learning to reduce, reuse, and recycle. The Scavenger Hunt will be held during the month of April, culminating in submission of entries just after Earth Day, April 22. Winners from each school will be chosen at random from completed entries and will be awarded a gift card. The class with the greatest number of entries will win a Popsicle Party and visit from members of the Recycling Committee. The Scavenger Hunt follows the successful Slogan Contest in 2010 and Essay Contest in 2009, sponsored by the Recycling Committee.
