Great Pacific Garbage Patch

When I first started this blog, I was amazed learning about the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. Here is a new article from the Miami Herald about plans to start cleaning it up next year. Of course, we need to take stringent methods to avoid adding plastics to it.

Flood Debris Clean Up

Thanks to the Harpeth River Watershed Association and Metro Public Works who together cleaned up over 10 tons of flood debris from the common area of Boone Trace subdivision.

The debris floated to the area last May. Some came from the flooded homes in the neighborhood; some debris traveled from far away.

We carted off tires, fencing, decking, railroad ties, trash cans, basketball goals, a gas grill, a computer monitor, cases of soda and beer, even someone’s bagged recyclables.

Cleaning the Creek?

BroomInCreek_1864Creek clean ups are one of my favorite activities. Keeping the water supply clean is important to me.

But Beech Creek in my neighborhood does not need cleaning with a broom. Why is there a broom in the creek?

Bellevue Clean Up Scheduled

From the morning newspaper:

Bellevue gears up for annual cleanup

October 4, 2009
–>An annual Bellevue cleanup will offer chances to toss out old furniture, shred documents and dispose of old electronics — as well as get your vehicle’s emissions test and renew license plates.

As well, volunteers will collect trash from the community’s main streets with assistance from community service workers.

The cleanup is 8 a.m. to noon Oct. 24 in the parking lot at Bellevue Center between the Sears store and former Macy’s store. It is sponsored by the Bellevue Exchange Club.

Here are the opportunities available:

Metro Nashville Public Works will provide roll-off bins for disposal of bulk items, no tree limbs or hazardous waste allowed.

Knighthorst Shredding will provide shredding of confidential papers, a limit of two boxes.

Goodwill Industries will be accepting gently-used items.

Creative Recycling Systems will accept computers, monitors, telephones and cell phones, printers and copiers, TV and stereo equipment, and calculators. Visit for a complete list of accepted items.

SysTech International will provide on-site auto emissions testing: Tests are valid for up to 90 days before license renewal.

John Arriola, Davidson County Clerk, will provide on-site renewal of license plates.

The Nashville Humane Shelter’s Rover Van will provide information on $10 spay and neuter services for family pets.

The Exchange Club is recruiting volunteers for the street cleanup. To participate or volunteer, contact Sheri Weiner at 615-347-7544 or Lee Cannon at 615-400-4104.
