Dale Carnegie famously said you should always catch people doing something right. With that being said, we would like to take his advice and give a shout out to our driver Bryce Pointer and his helper Donnie McMillan Truck 203 from our Jersey City Action depot for establishing a great relationship with the neighborhoods they service. While out on a route observation, one of our Risk Management team members, Bill Falleta, witnessed something incredible. People in the neighborhood were happy to see our driver and helper Bryce and Donnie! Bill witnessed people smiling and waving to them while others came running by with some cold water to keep them hydrated on a hot summer night. Bill said that the best part of the night was when an elderly woman and her dog came out of a residential building just to see our guys work. She said that she and her dog come out every night to greet them and her dog loves to watch them in ACTION! (Get it). Bill added that, “you can tell there was a relationship built there, both Bryce and Donnie walked over to pet the dog and speak to the woman for a bit, it was nice to see that this crew had a great relationship with the neighbors on their route.”

Fact #1

The average person generates over 4 pounds of trash every day and about 1.5 tons of solid waste per year.

In 2009, Americans produced enough trash to circle the Earth 24 times.

Over 75% of waste is recyclable, but we only recycle about 30% of it.

We generate 21.5 million tons of food waste each year. If we composted that food, it would reduce the same amount of greenhouse gas as taking 2 million cars off the road.

Recycling one aluminum can saves enough energy to listen to a full album on your iPod. Recycling 100 cans could light your bedroom for two whole weeks.

Recycling aluminum cans saves 95% of the energy used to make aluminum cans from new material.

Americans throw away 25,000,000 plastic bottles every hour.

Over 87% of Americans have access to curbside or drop-off paper recycling programs.

In 2009, Americans threw away almost 9 million tons of glass. That could fill enough tractor trailers to stretch from NYC to LA (and back!).

In 2010, paper recycling had increased over 89% since 1990.

If every American recycled just one-tenth of their newspapers, we could save about 25 million trees each year.
