Plastic bags are the #1 cause of ruined recyclables. In most cases, if you use plastic bags to bag your recyclables together, all of your recyclables are treated like trash. The reason why plastic bags are not recyclable is that they tend to get caught in machinery at recycling facilities, causing work to stop and workers to get injured. If you must bag your recyclables, make sure you empty the recyclable items that are inside the bag into your curbside bin, rather than tossing in the entire bag. While plastic bags are not recyclable in your curbside recycling bin, many grocery stores are able to recycle them, so try collecting your bags and bringing them to your local grocery store.

Keeping lids on plastic jugs and bottles increases lids chances of being recycled properly and not lost in the recycling process, usually due to their size.

I was extremely disheartened by a lot of what I saw in the barracks today. Numerous unsecured rooms, filthy laundry rooms, damaged unit property and uncleanliness in many of the common areas just to name a few things. It was obvious that leaders of all ranks have not been in many of the barracks in a long time. This will get fixed!! Our Soldiers deserve better than this!!

Did you know appliances and electronics use energy even on standby or sleep mode? Identify and eliminate energy sucking vampire appliances in your home and office like cable and satellite boxes, video game controllers, cell phone chargers, printers and computers and standby coffee makers.

Easiest way to combat these "vampires"? Unplug devices when not in use, use power strips for easy on and off, and upgrade to EnergyStar appliances.

It's time to #BYOBagNY. The plastic bag ban is in effect and today DEC Commissioner Basil Seggos announced that New York State will begin enforcement of the State’s ban on plastic bags on Monday, Oct. 19, 2020.

The plastic bag ban, which went into effect on March 1, was not enforced per an agreement between the parties in a lawsuit in New York State Supreme Court. The Court’s decision is a victory and a vindication of New York State’s efforts to end the scourge of plastic bags and a direct rebuke to the plastic bag manufacturers who tried to stop the law and DEC’s regulations to implement it. New Yorkers use an estimated 23 billion plastic bags annually—each for about 12 minutes—and approximately 85 percent of this staggering total ends up in landfills, recycling machines, waterways, and streets.

Learn about exemptions to the plastic bag ban, and find frequently asked questions, and posters, flyers, and tip strips to download, as well as tips for keeping reusable bags clean on the DEC website https://www.dec.ny.gov/chemical/50034.html

Today's edition is a reoccurring theme. Please know that ALL WIPES CLOG PIPES. Our Fort Drum Public Works staff is literally working around the clock to clear sewer blockages that are caused daily mainly by wipes being flushed. We can do better, we have to do better.

Please help me stop showing you pictures of clogged pipes. Stay safe and help keep our community safe.

Well this isn't the Earth Day post I hoped to bring everyone but here it is.

DO NOT flush anything but toilet paper. Flushable wipes, cleaning wipe, baby wipe, any kind of wipe, paper towel, etc. are NOT FLUSHABLE!!!!!!!! Wipes must go in the garbage.

Picture is the wipes that our PW team had to clean out of the clogged housing sewers this morning. These clogs not only put our PW Garrison teams at risk but can also stop your sewer system from draining properly and backing up in yards and homes.

PLEASE STOP FLUSHING WIPES!!!!

Don’t believe the hype. Never flush wipes!

Flushable wipes and baby wipes should never be sent down toilets and drains. Please share so we can all keep sewer backups out of our homes and our toilets can keep flushing.

Good information. Be careful and stay safe.

Good information. Be careful and stay safe.

Even if your cleansing wipes are running low, please do not mix cleaning products when disinfecting your home 🧽 Certain mixtures can create toxic fumes and skin irritation.

Bleach and vinegar causes coughing, breathing problems, burning and watery eyes.

Bleach and ammonia causes shortness of breath and chest pain.

Bleach and rubbing alcohol causes drowsiness.

Hydrogen peroxide and vinegar can cause severe irritation to the skin, eyes, and respiratory system.

Please please don’t flush anything down your toilets but toilet paper.

Even items like flushable wipes are not flushable. They do not break down in the sewer systems and create clogs.

DO NoT flush paper towels, grease, cloth, diapers, flushable wipes down your drains.

Your Fort Drum Public works staff is till working hard for you. Please don’t put them at risk by clogging the sewer system. Plus none of us need a sewer back up in our homes right now, right!

Trash and recycling services are essential services and will be on their regular schedule. Please do your part to follow the rules, now more than ever, and keep them and their families safe.

Keep climbing Fort Drum families, we will all meet at the top when this is over. Stay safe!

Public agencies are urging people to throw their disinfecting wipes in the trash, warning that not doing so could cause blockages and damage to sewer systems.
