Tis The Season.....To Recycle


The holiday season has arrived and so has the abundance of trash that will be generated.  Did you know that Americans throw away more trash between Thanksgiving and New Year’s than any other time of the year?  Small changes in the way we generate our holiday trash can have a big impact on the environment.  Here are some suggestions for the holidays:

Take Your Tree to a "Mulch" Better Place


 Don’t let your beautiful Christmas tree end up buried with the ugly trash. Take your Christmas tree to a “mulch” better place.   Recycle your Christmas tree with the annual “Grinding of the Greens” sponsored by Sumter County Keep America Beautiful, Clemson Extension Service, Sumter County Public Works, and the City of Sumter Public Services.

The purpose of the “Grinding of the Greens” is to reduce the number of trees going into the landfill and to provide mulch to residents.  Each tree can take up three to five cubic feet of space.  Landscape refuse such as leaves, grass clippings, limbs and even Christmas trees accounts for approximately 20 percent of the waste dumped in our landfills.  These valuable organic materials can easily be recycled and added back to the landscape as mulch.

Frying Turkey? Don't Forget to Recycle Your Cooking Oil


With Thanksgiving approaching, many of you will be deep frying turkeys and then you will have a few gallons of cooking oil left over. What do you do with used cooking oil? Recycle your used cooking oil, whether it is from frying a turkey or french fries. Sumter County accepts used vegetable-based cooking oil from residents for recycling at the county’s recycling centers. Any type of liquid vegetable oil (i.e., peanut, corn, canola, olive, etc) is accepted. The cooking oil will be processed and converted into biodiesel.
