30 TASTE OF THE TOWN


editorial@robson.com | SUN LAKES SPLASH | May 2013


Pauline Lee Did you know that the average American


creates one ton of trash per year, or 4 1/2 pounds per day? Recently a young couple in Oregon challenged themselves to create as little garbage as possible; in one year they produced only one shoebox full that had to be land fi lled! www.greengarbageproject. com. I’ll be introducing practical ideas from their experience in these columns, beginning with recycling since 30% of our trash can be recycled instead of land fi lled. For many people living in Sun Lakes,


Sun Lakes Disposal (SLD) picks up our recyclables on the fi rst and third Wednesdays of each month. Unfortunately SLD cannot recycle Styrofoam, plastic bags and wax covered containers, so please put these items in your garbage bin. If your recycling bin is overfl owing between collection days, you can call SLD to replace your 65-gallon


bin with a 95-gallon bin with no increase in monthly collection fee (480-895-2965). Or you can drop off your recyclables at any time at 9531 E. Riggs Road to benefi t the volunteer Sheriff’s Posse. (Please note that if you replace your garbage bin with a larger size there will be an increase of $2.50/ month due to the added cost of land fi lling garbage.) Recycling doesn’t just benefi t the


environment. SLD donates part of their income from selling our recyclables to our organizations such as Neighbors Who Care, Sheriff’s Posse, Tennis Club tournaments, Sun Lakes Seniors Softball Association, Doo Wop4 and the Cottonwood Men’s Golf Association. With Earth Day having passed on April 22, this is an opportune time to improve your recycling habits to preserve the environment for the enjoyment of future generations. 
