Don’t Miss the Chance to Pray for Your Sanitation Workers

A few of your minutes can have an everlasting impact! These men and women work long hours all through the cold winter months to serve us. It’s an extremely dangerous and often thankless but necessary job. As you go through your day today, stop and pray for these men and women who keep our communities safe and clean. Pray for their safety. Pray for their families. And if you see them out on the job consider telling them “Thank You!”

Rite Portable Restrooms

Proud to say that women have been part of Rite Portable Restrooms from Day 1 😊

When its cold outside we still rent portable toilets!

 

Old Man Winter is certainly on the move, just ask any Arwood Waste team member in the North

For much of the country, the winter months bring a few changes to how portable toilets and portable sanitation units are serviced. This change is to keep them functioning properly in the colder temperatures. Not much is worse than a solid chunk of frozen waste when you need to use your portable toilet.

To prevent this experience, we may need to provide an additional climatization service to your units during the months of November through March. If this is required, you may notice a small additional Climate Fee on your bill during the affected months.

Arwood Waste and our partners are committed to providing you excellent service all year long! If you have any questions about the Climate Fee or if we can serve you any way, call us at (800) 477-0854.

Reduce – Reuse – Recycle! America Recycles Day is November 15th

Happy America Recycles Day – November 15

There is no better time than today to start recycling! According to America Recycles Day, 75,496 people have signed the #BeRecycled pledge. If you sign the pledge, here is what you will be committing to do:

  • Learn – I will find out what materials are collected for recycling in my community.
  • Act – Within the next month, I will reduce the amount of waste I produce, I will recycle more, and I will buy products made with recycled content.
  • Share – In the next month, I will encourage one family member to take the #BeRecycled pledge.

Recycling starts with an awareness of how you personally impact our environment. There are 3 main ways to recycle: reduce, reuse, recycle. Reducing the amount of items you waste, reusing the items you can, and recycling those items you can’t reuse.

Reduce

As you consider ways to reduce, think about your shopping habits. What do you buy that you don’t need or that you could borrow or share with someone? Purchase products that can be recycled or reused. Instead of buying a cabinet full of cleaning products, buy all-purpose cleaners to cut down on bottles and glass container waste. Choose items with less packaging. Contact all of your creditors to go to paperless billing. This can also save you money and storage space. Go through your home and donate any items you are not using – this will benefit others and you as you will have less clutter.

Hazardous waste has become a big problem for our environment. Check out How to Recycle for ways to reduce the amount of hazardous waste you create.

Reuse

Repurposing or reusing is a great way to clean up our environment. This decision can save you money as well as you won’t have to spend on buying new items.

Reusing or Repurposing Ideas

  • Plastic Grocery Bags – reuse these to carry items after you use them for your groceries or use them as small trashcan liners. Many people use them to clean out the cat litter or to clean up after the dog rather than purchasing bags.
  • Reclaimed Wood – the reclaimed wood industry has gotten a boost in the last few years as so many of us are using it for decorating. If you aren’t particularly artsy, advertise your used wood online and you may find a buyer!
  • Cardboard and Newspaper – can be used to line an animal cage or for packaging items for shipping.
  • Blankets and Towels – many pet shelters and zoos are looking for these items. Homeless shelters and other charities are always happy to take them.
  • Egg Cartons – you can use these to separate beads, screws,nails, or any other small items. You can also use them as seed starters to grow plants.
  • Old Cell Phones, Computers, Tablets and Household Appliances – donate these to The Salvation Army or Goodwill as they may be able to repair or use them for parts.

For more ideas on repurposing your unwanted items, have a look at Mother Earth News.

Recycle

Recycling has a direct impact on cleaning up our environment. Just by following a few simple rules, you can change the entire future of our world!

Helpful Hints for Recycling

  • Keep a recycling bin nearby and make sure that everyone in your household or work area is aware of where it is located
  • Check with your local recycling collection centers to make sure you understand what may need to be separated in to different bins
  • Buy recyclable products whenever possible
  • Purchase products made from recycled materials to support the effort and cut waste
  • Use grass clippings in compost to spread under your bushes and trees to provide extra nutrients
  • Make recycling a natural part of your every day life and it will become a good habit

Thank You to Our Veterans this Veterans Day and Always

“The willingness with which our young people are likely to serve in any war, no matter how justified, shall be directly proportional to how they perceive the Veterans of earlier wars were treated and appreciated by their nation.” — President George Washington

On November 11 we recognize those who have made our great freedoms possible. Our country would not be the same without their service, sacrifice and commitment.

Arwood Waste regards our Veterans with great respect. We appreciate their service to our country. We also recognize and appreciate the families of veterans for the support they provide to their servicemembers.

Thank You for Your Service!

To all those who have served, thank you for bravely doing what you’re called to do so we can safely do what we’re free to do. May this Veteran’s Day find you surrounded by gratitude, love and comfort. Thank you for your service!
