Garbage costs, Recycling saves the Village money

Since the early part of last year, the number of tons of recyclables collected by the Village continues to decrease.  As we collect your garbage, recycling and yard waste, we are asking to help preserve the environment and at the same time save tax dollars.  In 2007:·         Bayside residents generated 1,426.79 tons of garbage, or 682.5 pounds per person.·         Bayside residents generated 425.4 tons of recycling, 203.49 pounds per person.   ·         Bayside property owners generated 566 tons of yard waste, each residential property in Bayside generated 696.61 pounds per house.         New in 2007, all 566 tons of residential yard waste will be mulched, composted and or redistributed within the community.   This change in operations will save the Village between $20,000 and $24,000 per year.  How can you do your part?  Recycle more.  Imagine if we could only reverse our recycling and garbage numbers!
