Recycling Report – Jan to August 2009

Posted on September 30th, 2009 in DB as a city,Recycling by Michele Felder

As you know, a full recycling program is carried out in every village throughout DB.  What you may not know is that all of the materials collected are weighed and recorded, providing a view of the recycling trends in the community for the first eight months of 2009.  From January through August, a total of 88,667 Kg of paper, 7,348 Kg of plastic, and 4,211 Kg of aluminium, have been collected for recycling.

At a village level: La Serene is in the lead with the highest recycling rate for paper (59 kg per unit); Peninsula Village (Jovial, Haven, Verdant, Cherish, Blossom, Twilight, Crestmont, Caperidge, Coastline) is in the lead for plastic (2 kg per unit); and Seabee Lane is leading for aluminium (1.22 kg per unit).  These rates are for the total material collected for the year, not on a monthly basis.

While the overall trend for paper recycling has been increasing modestly across the 8 months of this year, the plastic and aluminium recycling rates are fairly flat and not particularly high on a per unit basis.  Encourage your family and neighbours to recycle – let’s get those quantities up –2kg of plastic per month per family should be very easy to achieve!
