Watch Your Mailbox for the 2014 Loup Basin Recycling Guide

 Being “green” is about to get a whole lot easier.  Keep Loup Basin Beautiful, a local Keep America Beautiful affiliate that serves several counties in central Nebraska, has created the 2014 Loup Basin Recycling Guide.  This guide is intended to help people locate the recycling opportunities right in their hometown.  “Our goal with this project was to increase awareness of all the recycling opportunities available to people in the Loup Basin,” says Affiliate Director Anita Olson.  “By making it easier to recycle, we hope to keep valuable and useful materials out of the landfill.”  These useful materials include many hard to recycle items like batteries, Christmas lights, eyeglasses, medical equipment, used motor oil, and scrap metal.  Materials like these are listed alphabetically in the guide, with drop-off locations where they should be taken for recycling.  Community recycling trailer locations are also listed, where people can drop off more traditional recyclables like paper, plastic, aluminum, glass, and tin cans.

Thanks to grant funding from the Nebraska Environmental Trust and Nebraska Academy of Sciences, these handy recycling guides will be mailed out to every household in the nine Loup Basin counties.  The project also received contributions from local recycling companies including J&J Sanitation of O’Neill, Custer County Recycling of Broken Bow, and Alter Metal Recycling of Grand Island.  It is because of companies like these that recycling is available in central Nebraska.  If you live in Blaine, Loup, Garfield, Wheeler, Custer, Valley, Greeley, Sherman, or Howard County, be sure to check your mailboxes this week for your copy of the 2014 Loup Basin Recycling Guide!

For more information about the guide, or to offer corrections and additions for next year’s guide, please contact Keep Loup Basin Beautiful at 308-346-3393 or email [email protected].  Keep Loup Basin Beautiful is funded through the Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality and is a project of the Loup Basin Resource Conservation & Development Council.  Their office is located at 807 H Street in Burwell, NE.  Visit www.keeploupbasinbeautiful.org for more information.  You can also follow Keep Loup Basin Beautiful on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest!
