The City of Wheeling, WV was recently forced to acknowledge that their recyclables which we are required to sort are being transported to the same landfill as our garbage.

Have they even given any thought to how much this will cost? My garbage men pick up what I put out and give it the old heave-ho in a matter of seconds. Now if they're standing there picking through my trash looking for chicken bones and orange rinds that's going to add a whole lot of man hours..........and time those gas consuming, carbon emitting garbage trucks are running consuming more gas and spewing more carbon.

I can sympathize with the problem Wheeling has with finding buyers of used glass.

Here we get less than a penny a pound for it. But at least we don't put it in the landfill.

The more honest thing for Wheeling to do would be to simply tell residents that it no longer takes glass for recycling, and that residents should put glass in with their regular trash.

Kanawha County has a glass "pulverizer" which turns glass into a smooth edged mixture of "aggregate", fom a grain of sand to pea gravel in size. Thia is sold and used as landscaping material, among other uses.

The state of South Carolina uses glass as a component of road surfacing materials- as aggregate in "blacktop" etc.

Did you see where Tom Loehr is going to build a methane-fired power plant at Kanawha County's landfill and sell the power to the University of Charleston? The Gazette called him "Kanawha County entrepreneur Tom Loehr".
