FROM THE DIRECTOR’S CHAIR

2015 Santa

 

From Santa’s Sled!

Another year- another foot of snow and more! In keeping with our conference theme this year, NRRA’s most recent “Real Challenge” was met head on with a “Real Solution” –More shovels and trim the birch trees!!! See the pictures below to know NRRA has been in winter mode since it hit hard Thanksgiving week.  In thinking ahead to the gift giving season the best gift NRRA can give is to announce the “Save the Date” for NRRA’s 34th Annual Conference and Expo – June 8 and 9, 2015, at the Radisson in Manchester, NH.

2015 NRRA Conference Announcement Pic
Our theme this year is all about facing the many “Real Challenges” of resource recovery with “Real Solutions” that you can put to use.  From the outstanding Keynote Address on Monday to the Closing remarks and for all the workshops and exhibits in between, this year will be a real “hands on”, solution-oriented conference.

From the Board of Trustees and the entire NRRA staff, thank you for your support throughout the year, because it is “Members Helping Members” which has been the best “Real Solution” for 33 years; and we know with your help, it will be for another 33 and beyond.  We all hope you enjoy a safe and peaceful holiday season and look forward to working with you to solve all of your “Real Challenges” in 2015.

Annual Environmental Impact Reports – Coming Again Soon!

All members who marketed materials through NRRA’s Co-op Program in 2014 will receive an Environmental Impact Report in January of 2015.  As in the past, we will include information on the environmental benefits of what your recycling achieved. We are working to expand the items we cover in this report to give a more comprehensive overview of your success. We hope to have the reports out to you by the middle of January so you can include them in your Town Reports if you choose to do so.  This is a great way to see and share how important your efforts are and how your work impacts the planet in a positive way.

Voting Dues Renewals

It’s almost time to send out our dues packets for voting members. Each December, all municipal members receive a renewal packet for the upcoming year. Although dues are not technically due until April 1st, we send the invoice and membership information out in December so you can plan your budgets accordingly.  This year, we have expanded benefits to include a members-only section on our website. We will also send out an overview sheet which highlights many of the reasons why NRRA membership makes sense. Please keep an eye out for your packet this month, and let us know if you have any questions. Thank you for your continued support.

NRRA: Winter Wonderland

Snow  Ice Storm - Nov  2014 (6)

 

 

 

 

 

NRRA Trees Coming Down

 

 

As many of us around the State were digging out from the unexpected harsh Thanksgiving storm, things were no different at the NRRA office.  Pictured above (top), is a snapshop of the NRRA driveway on Thanksgiving Day.  As you can see, many of the trees were heaped with snow and ice causing the branches to block the driveway and prevent cars from coming  in.  Once power was restored and snow/ice were removed/melted, NRRA’s “plow guy”, Luke Stevens (bottom picture), came and trimmed the branches for us.  Although very attractive, we hope we don’t see this picture again anytime soon!

SCHOOL NEWS YOU CAN USE

Nashua Schools: Annual Recycing Calendar Contest Winners

Nashua Poster Calendar Snapshot
The City of Nashua’s Division of Public Works, Solid Waste Department has produced an annual recycling calendar poster for the past four years through a drawing contest for local school children. A different theme each year is introduced at the beginning of the school year, and twelve drawings by student artists are chosen by a panel of judges to be on the calendar, one for each month. Winners are acknowledged with prizes and a certificate signed by the Mayor at an awards program at City Hall in November. Each year 2,500 copies of the poster are distributed to schools, other public buildings and to the families of the students. The project is financed by donations from companies that do business with the Solid Waste Department. Each theme of the contest – in 2015 it’s “Be Smart, Use a Cart … RECYCLE” – encourages people to participate in the NASHUA RECYCLES single stream program both at home and in the schools.

Put the Environment on your Holiday Wish List

Enviromental OrnamentThis holiday season, why not give a gift that keeps on giving in the form of energy savings? Check out our list of energy-efficient gift picks for just about everyone on your shopping list!

For the home decorator: One idea is to give flameless LED candles. Some of these candles come with a melted wax look on the outside and a flickering light on the inside, so you don’t have to worry about actual dripping wax or open flames. These candles also can come with timer-controlled settings. While you’re in the holiday spirit, use LED lights for decorating the house or tree. ENERGY STAR certified LED light strands use 50% less energy than conventional incandescent lights strands. Not only do LED holiday lights consume less electricity, they are also cooler, safer and longer-lasting.

For the music lover: Some of the most popular new products are sound bars, wireless speakers and other gadgets with Bluetooth connectivity. Find one with the ENERGY STAR and your gift will not only be a hit, but will also be more than 60% energy efficient compared to other models.

For the home improvement DIY-er: Cordless screwdrivers, drills, and saws – as well as cordless yard care tools such as lawn mowers, string trimmers, and shears – all use about 30% less energy with ENERGY STAR certified battery chargers.

For the well-groomed person in your life: Personal care products like electric shavers, hair clippers, and beard trimmers that use ENERGY STAR-certified battery chargers can save up to 70% compared to those with conventional charging systems.

For the movie lover: If your loved ones enjoy streaming movies or videos, did you know that tablets and laptops use the least amount of energy? Tablets that are ENERGY STAR certified use 10 times less power to stream than a game console. They use 7 times less power than streaming directly to your television and 6 times less than streaming to a desktop computer and monitor. If you are streaming to your large screen television you can still do so more efficiently. The newest ENERGY STAR certified TVs offer the latest technologies and popular features, including Smart TV functionality, Ultra High Definition and LED backlighting all at an energy savings of more than 25% over standard models.

Energy Star is a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) voluntary program that helps businesses and individuals save money, reduce energy use and carbon dioxide emissions through energy efficiency. When out doing your shopping, be sure to look for the ENERGY STAR label.

Vermont E-Cycles News and Training

goodpoint-nrra logosAs collection volumes typically slow down in the winter months, please take some time to confirm that you have updated your registration status with the Agency and completed the required annual reporting data in Re-Trac. All registered collection locations should have received emails from Vermont ANR with instructions to do so, but please do not hesitate to contact Good Point Recycling or NRRA with further questions or concerns.
The following training on labeling requirements was provided by Lynn Rubenstein of the Northeast Recycling Council who is helping to administer the State Standard Plan in the current program year. All of the information below applies equally to Opt-Out Plan collection locations. NRRA has supplied labels in the past and collection locations using the NRRA labels do not need to change anything. Please contact Nathan Hill at nathanh@good-point.net with specific questions or concerns.
~Nathan Hill, Good Point Recycling

Labeling Requirements under the Vermont State Standard Plan for Escrap Recycling & State Law

Are you properly labeling your Gaylords and pallets? That’s an important question, especially as we are finding that many of the sites that are collecting electronics in Vermont are not getting it right. Please be sure that the attendants at your collection site/s are familiar with these requirements and implementing them.

The basic requirements for proper labeling are:

FOR ALL GAYLORDS & PALLETS

1. Must be labeled: Each Gaylord/pallet must have a (proper) label on it from the first moment that material goes into the Gaylord/onto the pallet.
2. The date of that first material must be written on the label.
3. Your Collector site ID (Vermont DEC EW#) number must be on the label. If you don’t know this, just ask, we can quickly provide it.
4. The location name – e.g., Local Transfer Station, Main Road , Town of Local

THE TYPE OF LABEL IS A QUESTION OF WHAT IS IN THE GAYLORD/ON THE PALLET

There are several types of labels depending on what is being collected in the container. These are:
Covered Electronic Waste:
Use this label when the box/pallet ONLY contains Computers, Monitors, TVs, Printers or Computer Peripherals from Covered Entities (households, charities, school districts, and businesses that employ 10 or fewer employees, or anyone dropping off fewer than 7 devices).
Covered Electronic Waste – Broken Devices
Same equipment as the Covered Electronic Waste applies, but the broken device label needs to be used when any broken devices – and this includes pieces of devices – are in the container. Only whole, intact devices should be in the other containers.
Non-Covered Entity equipment
Use this label when the equipment comes from non-covered entities. That would be from businesses with 11 or more employees, government entities, and others. Please see the DEC’s guidance on this for more info and how the “fewer than 7 devices” rule should be interpreted.
Non-Covered Equipment – Broken Devices
Same as above for covered equipment from Non-Covered Entities, but the broken device label needs to be used when any broken devices – and this includes pieces of devices – are in the container.
Mixed Covered Electronic Waste and Banned Equipment
If your site does not separate “Covered Electronic Waste” from other “banned equipment” – this includes VCRs, DVD Players and Wireless Phones, please use this label. Equipment from non-covered entities should NOT be included in boxes with this label.
Mixed Equipment – Broken Devices
Use this label if your site does not separate covered from banned equipment, and the box includes any broken devices. The broken device labels need to be used when any broken devices – and this includes pieces of devices – are in the container.

WHERE CAN I GET LABELS?

While there is no requirement that you use the State Standard Plan labels, they are available for download from our website (http://www.electronicsrecycling.org/vermont/ContentPage.aspx?PageID=9). You can print these out on regular paper and use tape to affix to the containers.

Or you can create your own labels. To be acceptable the following minimum requirements must be met:
1. Clearly mark the container, pallet, or package containing electronic devices with the words “electronic waste “or “used electronics”.

2. The label must also include the location name, facility ID, and date the container was started.

Questions: If you have any questions, please contact Lynn Rubinstein at Vt-escrap@nerc.org

NATIONAL NEWS

Younger Americans are less likely to recycle and be green than older age groups, according to a new survey.

Allan Gerlat, Waste 360

American adults ages 18-34 are significantly less likely to say they always recycle than those older – 33 percent compared with 48 percent, according to an online poll conducted in November of more than 2,000 U.S. adults by Harris Poll and commissioned by the Washington-based Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries (ISRI).

In addition, those 18-34 are less likely to say that recycling is the socially responsible thing to do, that it is critical to reducing energy consumption and will help reduce landfill space than Americans in older age categories.

“Over the last several decades communities have strived to make recycling easier through curbside pickup, drop off locations, convenient public cans located near trash cans, recycling drives, and more,” said Robin Wiener, president of ISRI, in a news release. “That is why it is so disappointing and shocking to see young people not fully understanding the value of recycling.  Clearly, more needs to be done both to encourage recycling and better comprehend why younger generations aren’t seeing the energy, environmental and economic benefits that recycling provides.”

According to the poll, 90 percent of Americans believe that recycling collection sites need to be more readily accessible to consumers. And 68 percent believe that manufacturers and/or retailers should pay for recycling programs when they are not already available to consumers, while 62 percent believe the government should pay for those recycling programs.

TerraCycle, Staples Partner on Zero Waste Recycling Boxes

By Allan Gerlat, Waste 360
zero-waste-boxes-111814

TerraCycle and Staples Canada Inc. are partnering to offer Canadians a zero waste recycling option for household and office waste.

Trenton, N.J.-based TerraCycle is offering a system in which Canadians can recycle most items through its Zero Waste Boxes, which are sold online through the Richmond Hill, Ontario-based Staples Canada Inc.

Zero Waste Boxes are labeled either by stream (batteries, light bulbs, for example) or by room (break room waste, bathroom waste). Consumers collect the waste based on stream and mail it to TerraCycle with the prepaid shipping label printed on each box. The waste then gets sent to a processing plant to be recycled into benches, bicycle racks, watering cans and other items.

“We want to eliminate the whole concept of waste,” said Tom Szaky, TerraCycle founder and CEO, “and this program brings us one step closer, helping people to understand the value in what they would normally throw in the garbage.”
