Buildings and Grounds : Update

by Gary Mummert

There are some changes with our management of refuse and recycling. Now that a new trash area has been erected, all refuse and recycling goes into large carts behind the 6 foot stockade fencing and must be bagged. Throwing loose trash or loose items for recycling into the carts could cause our vendor to reject pickup and extra (nasty) work for B&G. 

Bags of various sizes and colors are stored in both kitchens. We use white and black bags for refuse, and clear and blue see-thru bags for recycling. 

Recycling will be addressed next month. For now, both refrigerators have recycling guidance for review, based on CT’s regional waste agency. Please help us to comply to reduce rejection of recycling materials by the sorting companies.
