ULNRD Improves Recycling Program with Baling Facility

The ULNRD received a grant from the Nebraska Environmental Trust to improve and increase recycling initiatives for the Upper Loup District. Upon implementing the existing recycling program of collecting recyclable materials of aluminum, plastics, tin, and paper, the ULNRD had been strongly urged to collect cardboard by constituents to help further reduce solid waste that is being sent to the landfill. The overall goal for this project is twofold. One is to meet the expressed desires of the NRD’s residents and two, to establish a means of making the current recycling program sustainable. Funding was used to construct a new building and loading dock. The building is located on District property which will be used to bale cardboard and paper, tin and aluminum. Throughout the last three years the recycling program has seen much success. Recycling trailers have been placed in the communities of Dunning, Halsey, Hyannis, Mullen, Seneca, Thedford, as well as taking over the transportation of Stapleton’s trailer. The program has increased the types of materials it collects, the ULNRD now collect plastics number 1-7, tin, aluminum, paper, and cardboard (limited sites).
