What's Going Down Your Drain?

Wow! We had a great response to our garbage disposal survey. Here's what we learned...

93% surveyed have a garbage disposal and 3/4 use it daily or at least 2-3 times per week, primarily for plate scrapings at the end of a meal. 

Why did we ask? What does this mean? 

Food that is sent down the drain is very costly to process (removing excess nutrients) at the wastewater treatment facility. Also, the oils and grease from your food builds up and may cause blockages in your home! 

There's a better way to handle those food scraps - through composting! We encourage folks to sign up and participate in our curbside Feed The Green Bin food scrap program. It's a user-friendly program, but there are still many residents who can participate, but haven't signed up yet. We're wondering why. Check out our how-to videos to see how EASY IT IS!

We've made Feeding The Green Bin even easier! Residents in the collection areas can now set out all of their food scraps for collection; including meat, fat and dairy

Help us grow our program! Visit FeedTheGreenBin.org to sign-up.

Not in the collection area? You can still participate by dropping off food scraps at The Alpha Ridge Landfill or by composting in your backyard.

Household Hazardous Waste Days 

HHW drop-off at the Alpha Ridge Landfill is closed for 2016. Good news! There will be special drop-off days on Saturday, January 7, February 4 and March 4More details here.

Why Recycle? 

Last month's Howard County stats motivated many families to do a little bit more! Remember, even one extra item in your recycling cart is great! 

This month we challenged the Recycling Division staff. Why Recycle? (in 25 words or less)

  • It's an easy choice to give that valuable resource the chance to live on and be made into something new.
  • To provide feedstocks for new products, reducing the need to harvest virgin resources.

To create jobs. To create awareness of consumption choices.

  • To invest in the health of the environment. Sorting our waste gives us a clear picture of how much we consume and how we can minimize our carbon footprint.
  • To reduce waste and contribute to our economy. Recycling is a cause that benefits everybody rather than a small group. 
  • Everything has value & waste is dumb. Environment. Jobs. No one wants to live next to a landfill or incinerator.

Christmas for Kids
Saturday, December 17, 2016 @ 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM

Christ Lutheran Church Clarksville Pike/Rte. 108

Busy parents are invited to bring their children to the 2016 Christmas for Kids at Christ Lutheran Church (on Clarksville Pike/Rte. 108, just south of Guilford Road near Route 32) from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM, on Saturday, December 17.  Christmas for Kids is offered free to the community by Christ Lutheran Church, and the children of the area, no matter their background or affiliation, are invited to attend. At the same time, parents will be given a few extra hours on a weekend to take care of their holiday preparations — or simply catch their breath!

Hear the News the Angels Bring!, this year’s program, focuses on the “good news of great joy … for all people” (Luke 2:10) that is the Christmas message so that children understand the importance of the holiday and what it all means. At a time when children tend to look forward to getting toys and games, this year’s program will help children look forward to Jesus’ coming to give them what is most important. The event will include the Christmas story, music, special crafts, and a snack — and fun! The day's activities are for children age 4 through 8th grade.

Due to space limitations, pre-registration is requested. To register a child, please visit the church web site — www.christlutheran.net — or call Audrey at (410) 730-5209 (Christmas for Kids registration only). Interested parents may also call the church office at (301) 854-2100 or email office@christlutheran.net for more information.
