Rotary helping to recycle plastic that WM doesn’t


Rotary District Governor Anita Daniels visited the Nevada City Rotary Club this past week to celebrate the kick off of one of their environmental sustainability initiatives, which includes having collection boxes placed in front of various merchants, including BriarPatch Food Co-op, The ReStore and B & C Hardware. The club is collecting clean, stretchable, dry, clean plastics such as those wrapping groceries, bread, ice, produce, cereal and newspaper sleeves, cleaning covers, Ziploc bags and bubble wrap (none of which is recycled by Waste Management). This material will be sent to the TREX company, and re-fashioned into decking and outdoor furniture. It is the goal of this initiative to keep this material out of the landfill and reduce this type of pollution in our fragile world.
