I do agree that rural areas such a ours that are far from many resources will struggle due to the cost of fuel to ship and employees to pay. I commend Twin E for thinking outside the box and looking elsewhere. Its a chance they are taking and hope that it becomes viable for them which in return will be great for Steamboat. Waste Management has been offering recycling since the 90's and now charges a fee.
I have never been a fan of pd recycling because more will end up in landfills but it may be time to except the fact that this is the way it may have to be. IMO, recycling can be sustainable and in some places is a must due to the fact that landfills are not an option. (San Francisco for example recycles over a 75% of its cities trash and is pushing for 100% with the exemption of plastic bags) They are on the extreme side of recycling due to type of area, lack of land space and surrounded by water so they really have no choice.
Very interesting on how they have accomplished such a large task.
You can check out some of it here:
Completely disagree for soo many reasons. I'm not going to get into all the reasons why recycling is very important but for now, lets just consider one: Landfill waste. This alone is worth the extra $$$ to recycle.
I would think that a company large enough to recycle has the means, know how, and enough knowledge and commonsense to realize whether it is a viable and cost effective solution. If one complains about recycling then shouldn't one complain about the most pollutant fossil fuel in the world? Hmmmm...
Thank you to the police officer who got these two off the road.....
6:23 p.m. Officers were called to a report of a suspicious incident in the 400 block of Grand Street. Someone saw a dog take a loaf of bread from a home. The dog had ransacked the home.
.......It's hard not to laugh at this police report....... And I thought we had a bear problem.....No biscuits for you...One week....
Read and listen then make up your own mind. I don't think that there is enough evidence to really place any blame yet untill further evidence from either party is brought to light.
As disturbing as the vid is, it is quite obvious that the editing from the fetus to her conversation gives me no proof that that fetus is the same she is talking about in the vid. I am not naive or closed minded and her emotions look to be true but I still dont see any proof except for what she is stating to be true.
Please read and listen to the clip here and this will only further confuse any facts that are perceived to be true. IMO. the Republicans will run heavy with this story to only further confuse those who do not do research on there own in order to boost more votes for there party.
Its frustrating watching the direction that Steamboat has and is taking. Police fiasco, RVP, parking studies $$$, blitened yampa and now a new school. Feels like people who have moved here in the last few years are trying to shape our quaint little town into something unnecessary. The last thing we need is another stop light west of town. If a school goes there, that is what will happen and we can bet that our traffic congestion will be just horrible for anyone going east or heading into the industrial area. Lets not forget that our highschool has an off campus lunch if want. That's going to create a nightmare for those that drive or bike into town for lunch. Certainly will not be time to bike for lunch which means more cars on the road at what is an already busy traffic time of day. Most of the long time local parents I have talked to know that we do not need another high school but wish that there were more day care and pre-school options...
Agreed. Although it is nice to see some development west of town, there are plenty of commercial rents in the valley.(maybe more then I've ever seen).
Like Pat said, The videos have been shown to be false and edited to distort what is happening? It has been all over the news and internet for months. The Today show even did a cast on what was edited and that there has been no proof to this whats so ever. Show me real proof not and edited vid that clearly is distorting and I will certainly change my stance but one thing is for sure, "Once a conspiracy theorist, always a conspiracy theorist". Look at the facts before jumping into the cesspool of conservatism... The Grand Old Party is exactly that, " Grand and Old in the ways of the past". I highly doubt that anyone in this party will become our next potis. Its time to get rid of the party status which now reminds me of a high school click status. IMO, America should change its voting policies where we listen to the person and not the party. This is truly the only way we will ever see fair and balanced voting from people who truly care about this country and not just a party's agenda...
