Trudging into Oct.

In the midst of having samples collected in Maryland cut, also in the thick of campus recycling and composting. the large amount of waste generated by any municipality, even a college campus, once you actually have manage it. i think the average for weekly pick up of mixed recycling (glass, plastic, aluminum) and cardboard (plus any stray paper, shredded documents) has been 13 tons. that's 26,000 lbs. It could be more if people recycled properly, yet it should be a lot less if people stopped buying cases of 8 oz water bottles. seriously....8 oz of water? whose thirst is that gonna quench?
