I’m not sure that everyone realizes the wonderful resource Jamestown has in its recycling center. Tons of materials go through there that would otherwise go into the landfill but instead go on to be reused in metal and paper products. The center also takes clean and useable clothing and shoes that go for good causes.

Officials in North Dakota’s capital city are sorting through the details of a newly adopted curbside recycling program.
Bismarck commissioners voted Feb. 12 to begin the program for all single-family households. City Director of Public Services Jeff Heintz said he hopes it gets under way by early fall.
While the city of Jamestown has temporarily put off efforts to discuss possibly moving forward with curbside recycling until next year, Jamestown College has moved its own efforts to the forefront by implementing a campus-wide recycling program.
Implementing a recycling plan is not as simple as sorting cardboards from plastics.
Although the concept seems simple, and sometimes obvious and outdated for some (seriously, it’s 2011 and we don’t have a recycling program yet?) implementing a system isn’t as easy as it may seem. At least, it isn’t easy given the city’s cup, like the James River, runneth over normal capacity.
Daryl Johnson could have circled an 18-hole golf course with his string of about 4 million pop tops.
Instead, after about 20 years of collecting the aluminum can tops which are roughly a square inch in size, Johnson decided he would recycle them Monday and donate the proceeds to the Ronald McDonald House Charities.

The proposed cost of $4.80 per home for curbside recycling pickup is too high. What happens for the five months or so of winter when pickup would be unlikely? Also, who would be responsible for cleanup of spilled containers caused by animals and windy weather? (We do have wind here).
City Council Chambers overflowed Monday with members of the public showing support for a curbside-pickup recycling proposal. And although they spoke in support of it, some took issue with parts of the proposal, including its cost.
