recycling

Rather than looking to expand the landfill in Colonie or to regionalize for a bigger landfill elsewhere, Albany County needs to pass laws that required people to do what needs to be done — divert the waste that can be recycled or used productively as compost. San Francisco provides a workable model that we can follow.

The idea of recycling became a whole lot less abstract for the girls of Brownie Troop 1419 in Guilderland when they toured a recycling plant on Fuller Road in Albany and found out where empty PET bottles actually go and saw what it takes to ready them for a new life.

The United States produces more electronic waste than any country on Earth yet has no national laws on how to dispose of it and no plants to recycle it.

Volunteers at Farnsworth Middle School Saturday collected and sorted the objects neglected by homeowners and prepared them for taking on new forms at a recycling facility or new homes through reuse.

The town board voted against renewing Greene County Sanitation's license to dump at the Westerlo transfer station after reports of out-of-town trash.
