Our balers help Washington D.C. compact waste. Do you also want to recycle?
Most people know that Washington DC is the Capital of the United States, but did you know it is not a state? D.C. residents could not vote in presidential elections until the 23rd amendment was ratified in 1961. They drink more wine per capita than all other states and the National Monument is two differ colors – but the two are not related. The fact is the project ran out of money so it was built with different stones when it was restarted. Recycling isn’t exactly thriving in the nation’s capital. They have begun to use our compactors and balers for efficient compaction and recycling.
Buy a baler - compact and recycle:
Washington DC may recycle ideas, but not trash
D.C.’s waste diversion rate (the percentage of waste diverted from the landfill or incinerator by recycling or other efforts) hovers around 23%. It has gotten better from times past, but the same problem that plagues the rest of the country plagues D.C. – the cost of recycling.
In D.C., and the general area, getting the word out about what can and can’t be recycled is a big focus. That’s because most jurisdictions in the region run a “single-stream” recycle program, where everything is collected in one bin before it’s hauled off to be sorted, baled and sold. And a few bad items in the bin can spoil the whole thing.
While the problems are focused on curbside education, businesses too need to start to embrace equipment like that offered by Bramidan so cardboard and other materials can be source separated and returned into the recycle stream non-contaminated. Perhaps the years ahead we will see not only a cleanup of politics in DC, but of the city itself.
