New Holiday Trash Collection Schedule

The City and County of Broomfield and the Broomfield Open Space Foundation are hosting this free event tomorrow, April 2, at the Broomfield Community Center in the Lakeshore Room at 280 Lamar Street. The event runs from 9 a.m. to noon.

The city of Tucson actively promotes recycling throughout the area and wants its residents to use containers provided by them to get rid of papers and plastics. While most homes and duplexes have two separate containers for trash and recyclable materials, many apartment buildings do not have both types of trash receptacles for residence. This makes it hard for people who want to recycle to get rid of their approved paper and plastic items at home. I’ve lived in both apartments and homes in this city, and from personal experience, it is easier to recycle when containers are either in front of your home or at a nearby location.

People who don’t realize they have a bedbug infestation may attribute the itching and welts to mosquitoes. The only way to confirm bedbug bites is to find and identify the bugs themselves.

As public awareness increases, on this problem, the admission process, in some hospitals, now includes asking patients if they have been exposed to bedbugs – while they are being asked about their name and insurance information.

Reduce reuse recycle is your mantra to repeat to yourself each time you go to throw something away. Once you learn the three “R’s” you will be able to set a better example and help your Radon Mitigation program combat the never ending supply of garbage.

Bedbugs move fast but do not fly. They can crawl quickly on floors, walls, and ceilings. Female bedbugs may lay hundreds of eggs over a lifetime. The size of a bedbug egg is about the size of a speck of dust.

Although these are the basics, you might want to ask some additional questions. Waste management companies often care about the environment. They try to reduce waste and help keep our country as clean as possible.

When you see others recycling, this may convince you to be more conscientious about waste reduction and disposal. Then in turn, imagine how many people may be swayed by your devotion to the cause.
