Rocio Martinez-Mendoza, Spanish teacher and Eco Club leader at Rice Middle School, envisioned an eco garden that would invite the school community to learn about and appreciate nature. With the help of one of our Sustainable Community grants, the project is nearing completion! Seats for an outdoor classroom; bird baths, bird feeders and butterfly-attracting perennial plants to invite flying friends for observation; and plenty of whimsical design are currently on display with more to come. So far 75 volunteers have eagerly helped put the plans in place to create a truly unique amenity on the Rice campus.

This month's recyclable we're highlighting is Plastic #1, or PET or PETE. What is PET/PETE? ♻️

➑ PET or PETE (polyethylene terephthalate) is the most common plastic for single-use bottled beverages, because it's inexpensive, lightweight and easy to recycle.

➑ Found in: Soft drinks, water, ketchup and beer bottles; mouthwash bottles; peanut butter containers; salad dressing and vegetable oil containers.

βœ… Make sure your items are empty, clean and dry before placing them in your recycling cart.

Remember to "doo" the right thing and pick up after your pets! 🐢

Remember to "doo" the right thing and pick up after your pets! 🐢

Monday Mythbuster: Dog doo is NOT a fertilizer. It contains bacteria and diseases harmful to people and pets. It's also high in nitrogen and phosphorus, which leave those familiar burn marks on your lawn. Those chemicals are bad for your lawn as well as our creeks and waterways.

➑️ It all adds up! There are over 125,000 dogs and cats in Plano. In just one week a single dog can produce 5 pounds of doo and a cat can make 1 pound of doo. That's almost 20 million pounds of waste a year just in Plano!

So please Doo the Right Thing, not just because it's the law but because it is the right thing to do. Pet owners, please remember to bring your bags for each outing to Plano's parks and trails and let's put p**p where it belongs--in the trash 🐢 City of Plano, Texas Government Visit Plano Live Green in Plano Plano Animal Shelter

NTREG Jan 9, 2021 Zoom Meeting: Recycling Electronics and More: UER Virtual Field Trip Jan Field Trip: Live on-line tour of United Electronics Recycling facilities in Coppell, TX with UER account manager Terry Shultz. About this Event Presenter: Terry Shultz, Account Manager, United Electronics Recycling About Our Presentation: As has been customary for many years, our January NTREG meeting is a Field Trip. Under present circumstances, this year's excursion will be a live on-line tour of United Electronics Recycling facilities in Coppell, Texas. Terry Shultz will be our tour guide. Seeing is to appreciate all that goes into processing electronics and all the operational paths involved. It's generally more than most of us would imagine. During Terry's presentation, she will take us on a virtual tour of all the steps and departments involved. From collecting the electronics during events and pickups, to receiving the equipment on their docks. The triage process: Will it go to teardown, a specialty commodity stream, end of life contract, testing for resale, data security, wholesale or local retail level, etc.? The Administrative aspects: From scheduling to final reports. It takes an entire team of people and considerable floor space to get the job done! About Our Presenter: Terry Shultz has been working in the environmental and sustainability fields for over 22 years, and has spent the last 15 years focusing on electronic recycling. During those years she has worked with a wide range of industry types, sizes and project scopes. A favorite personal quote: "One of the great benefits of working in the E-Waste Business is knowing that most of the equipment and materials can go back in the manufacturing stream or will go into the reuse cycle". Terry has been an Account Manager with United Electronic Recycling ("UER") since 2018. Previously, she founded Verde Tech and E-Waste Collections, electronic recycling and data security companies. Terry has a passion for protecting the planet for future generations, and helping people along the way. Have your questions ready! Questions from meeting attendees are welcome, and will be answered. How to attend (open to the public & free either way): Subscribe to NTREG groups.io or register with Eventbrite to get the Zoom access information: https://ntreg.groups.io/g/main https://www.eventbrite.com/e/recycling-electronics-and-more-uer-virtual-field-trip-registration-135703796709 Follow Up: Follow event on Facebook for updates & discussion: https://www.facebook.com/events/235155701387751 Recordings and presentation are posted on the NTREG website when available, on the Past Presentations page under Resources -> Information Files & FAQ -> Past Presentations: https://www.ntreg.org/pastmeetings.html Website: https://www.ntreg.org/ .

Electronics Recycling: According to EPA the United States is estimated to have generated nearly 50 million tons of electronics waste in 2018 compared to 41.8 million tons worldwide in 2014. Currently the US produces about 14% of the world's electronic waste. Join us for the July meeting of the North Texas Renewable Energy Group in Dallas to learn what one North Texas company is doing to address this growing problem. https://www.facebook.com/events/410088412922862 Check back later on our website where we post presentations: https://ntreg.org/downloads.shtml
