HCSWMD seeks recycling services information

In the coming weeks, the staff at the Hendricks County Solid Waste Management District will be working to update its biennial Guide to Being Green: Waste Reduction, Reuse, and Recycling in Hendricks County.

The publication includes information about the programs and services offered by the SWMD, as well as an A to Z section devoted to businesses and organizations that offer recycling services to the public.

The 2012 version of the Guide to Being Green contained information from 52 central Indiana organizations that accept materials for reuse, recycling or — in the case of certain wastes — proper disposal. The materials covered included items such as rechargeable batteries, clothes hangers, eyeglasses, hydraulic fluid, MP3 players, aluminum cans, packing peanuts, plastic shopping bags, televisions, and more. The guide lists the various materials, the organizations that will accept them from the public, and any fees or restrictions that may be in place.

“Each time we update our Guide to Being Green, we reach out to those organization we are familiar with to be sure we are including the most accurate information about the services they offer,” SWMD Executive Director Lenn Detwiler said. “We are hoping that other organizations offering these kinds of services will contact us so we can include them in the upcoming version.”

The district does not charge organizations to be included in the guide.

Amy Sieferman, outreach coorcinator for SWMD, said, “It’s part of our mission. We want people to know that there are local, convenient alternatives to simply putting an unwanted object in the trash.”

A searchable, online directory containing this same information was recently added to the district’s website, HendricksSolidWaste.com. The information gathered for the Guide to Being Green will also be included in the online directory.

To have information about a recycling program or service included in the guide, contact Amy Sieferman by calling 858-6070 or by e-mailing to asieferman@HendricksSolidWaste.com. The WSMD anticipates publishing the updated version of its guide this spring.

The mission of the Hendricks County SWMD is to promote recycling, waste reduction and responsible waste management within the county.
