Monthly Recycle Drives Move to Pacific for the Summer. Starting with our April drive we’ll be in Pacific Steel & Recycling’s lot – same time 8am – noon and usually the same 3rd Saturday of the month. EXCEPT for April! Please help spread the word – We’re moving the April drive to 4/26/14 since Easter falls on the 3rd weekend. See you then at Pacific!
Bring us Your Number 5s! That’s right, thanks to MSU-Northern and its sustainability program – the community can bring their clean number 5 plastics (lids removed) to Recycle Hi-Line’s monthly drives. The program has permission to coordinate the community’s number 5 recycling for the next year as a pilot program. Please keep your 5s separate from your 1s and 2s as they go to different places.
The Montana DEQ’s 2012 Recycling & Waste Diversion Summary was recently released. We’re proud to see that Montanans recycled more waste per person per day than the national average (1.9 pounds compared to 1.53 pounds). Recycling is increasing in the state and landfill tonnage is decreasing so we’re on the right track. Keep up the great work – we can do even better! One noted area to focus improvement efforts on is the 8.8 pounds of solid waste generated per day per Montanan in 2012. The national average was 4.4 pounds.
Starting in November the location of the monthly recycle drives changed to the Holiday Village Mall parking lot (see the 11/8/13 Havre Daily News article). During Pacific Steel & Recycling’s summer hours, the drive will take place in their lot. Check back here or on our Facebook page if you’re unsure where to take your recyclables.
