On Tuesday December 6, 2016, Andy McKeever composed an article on iBerkshires with the following details:  “Keep up with auto inspection stickers or you may be in violation.  Mayor Linda Tyer submitted a petition that adds verbage to the junk vehicle code indicating any vehicle lacking a valid inspection label would be illegal to house on properties beyond 48 hours. The petitions where presented to the Ordinance & Rules Committee without discussion, the initiative was okayed to return to the full council.  The Fire Dept. apparently has issues in the past attempting to cite owners for storage of junk cars. The cities code has prohibited owners from retaining them for a period exceeding 48 hours. All abandoned, wrecked, junked, dilapidated, non-functioning or unregistered vehicles, unless they maintain a junk dealer license.

The law did not apply any restriction on an auto that may be registered & still running but has an expired or otherwise sticker that is not valid. These citations are customarily given to land owners storing several junk vehicles on the premises. Citations for those violating the ordinance are $50 for the 1st offense, $100 for the 2nd, and $300 for the 3rd. It is unlikely that the Fire Dept. would be delivering citations those circumstances. Inspections are to instruct property owners and citations are a final resort. And it is not likely that the inspectors would be searching around the city for markers on simply a vehicle or two in a driveway.

To stay current those inspection stickers still need to be valid. The alteration is small but it is not the 1st time this year that the order has been issued. One scrap site in Westfield has the cars are parted out & resold.  Fire inspection team brought them before the Board for buying & selling old vehicles without a car dealer license. The board finally determined that it was not in violation of state law since the parts were not being sold from the Pittsfield site since the purchases were all for scrap vehicles that the license properly covered and the vehicles are not the sole business. In 2015, the junk vehicle rule inspired charges against former candidate for mayor Craig Gaetani. He was alleged to have threatened a woman in the Fire Dept’s inspection bureau about a case of scrap vehicles. In that particular circumstance he supposedly called requesting the dept. to remove junk vehicles that were illegally positioned on a property he owned and the exchange got heated — leading to criminal charges.”  The complete story is available here.

A September 30, 2016 story in Recycling International by Kirstin Linnenkoper tells us the following: “Over six billion batteries were sold in the US in 2014, with a combined weight of 242M kilograms, says a report by North American battery collection outfit Call2Recycle, which recycled a record 3.3M kilograms of one-use and rechargeable batteries in the 1st half of this year. Market indicators proved that, in 2014, alkaline-style batteries were over 60% of battery weight sold, while SSLA/Pb and Li-Ion are estimated to be approximately about 15%. Smith says that over 80% of rechargeable batteries marketed in 2014 were actually Li-Ion, while fewer than 40% were marketed by weight.

Primary batteries were said to have a much shorter lifespan than the rechargeable battery style, with about 80% of alkaline batteries disposed of by their seventh year. Li-Ion and Ni-Cd batteries didn’t reach the 80% disposal rate until after 11 or 15 years respectively. Alkaline batteries will last (15+) years. Also, the rate of which batteries are used in all consumer products is definitely increasing. As a result of this trend, the statistics will be different from what has been designed.

Over the next few years, the battery classification is going to change quite a bit in sales and mix. The amount of single-use batteries sold in the US is likely to decline, while rechargeable batteries are believed to surge. In 2014, the approximate split of battery sales by weight was 2/3 primary to 1/3 rechargeable. Some of the major trends include that as single-use batteries have a short lifecycle and are likely to be simply removed from a products, using sales volume in the market in calculation of the collection rate and recycling plan performance is fairly accurate. Rechargeable-style batteries have a lengthed lifecycle and, for some attractions and product applications, more probable to be embedded in many products.” The full article is available here.

In a July 5, 2016 Boston Globe article titled ‘Women gearing up for careers in the auto industry’ by Katie Johnston we learned the following: “Samantha Briody works behind the parts counter at AutoZone. Briody, 21, recently graduated with a bachelor’s degree in automotive management from the Benjamin Franklin Institute of Technology in Boston, and just began new position as a parts specialist at a VW dealership in Norwood. Gender stereotypes is likely to remain part of her job; the number of women taking auto classes has remained steady or risen in schools, those working as mechanics and in auto component sales has declined. Technicians are in demand and women the auto industry is doing more to attract women to the field.

The Automotive Women’s Alliance Foundation and the Car Care Council Women’s Board have attracted more sponsors recently, allowing them to increase the quantity of scholarships they award. GM is the 1st major auto company to have a female chief executive and has plans to recruit and better support female employees. Auto employers who come to the Benjamin Franklin Institute are now seeking out women, especially to interact with customers. With women making 80% of car-buying decisions, according to the research firm Frost & Sullivan, it makes sense to have more working in the industry.

Women make up only about 10% of approximately 150 automotive students at the institute, and to combat this lack of community, they recently helped form a women’s group where students discuss discrimination, hear from women in the industry, and travel to trade shows. Women at the school may be far outnumbered, but they are serious about their education. Once they get out into the male-dominated auto workforce, many don’t last. The share of female mechanics has fallen by around 3% over the past 20 years, according to the Bureau of Labors. In wholesale & retail auto components, the percentage of females has also. The number of women in management positions in the auto industry has also fallen.

This decline reflects an overall decline in the number of women in traditionally male fields such as agriculture, coal mining, & manufacturing. The reason for this, said Anna Beninger, director of research at Catalyst Inc., is company culture. The gender gap is not just in blue-collar jobs. Women who enter STEM fields — science, technology, engineering, & math — often start in lower-level positions and earn less money than men. Of those who do go into automotive, high tech, manufacturing, and other male-dominated fields, 53% left to work in another industry — compared to 31% of men — because they feel like outsiders, lack female mentors, and experience both overt & unconscious discrimination.

In some areas of the auto industry more female workers are present such as in automobile sales. Diane Larson helped her husband open Larson’s Service years ago and took over the business after he passed away in 2008. When she was at a trade show with a 21-year-old guy of another shop owner a few years ago, vendors automatically directed their questions to him. But her shop is thriving, due in part to the new ways she runs it. Customers come to her service station two times per year for prescheduled checkups, similar to a dental office. This brings in repeat business and keeps customer cars from breaking down. Incorporating women’s ideas are good for the business, says Larson, who is will soon have a female shop manager.” The full article is available at: https://www.bostonglobe.com/business/2016/07/04/women-gearing-for-careers-auto-industry/7ineRe27hnYmTsB3OwfQXO/story.html

In the January 28, 2016 edition of waste350.com Robert Carr authored an article titled ‘Contamination Continues to Hurt Recycling Efforts’ which informed us as follows: “US cities are examining methods to cut back, or even eliminate, recycling programs to save money. Experts say costs could be trimmed if residents were more responsible. Recycling costs are rising across the US. Also, there is less demand for recycled materials internationally & low oil prices lowered costs of making new material. One problem is too much garbage in with the recycling clogs sorting facilities & requires more labor to remove.

David Biderman, CEO @ Solid Waste Association of NA, says governments are evaluating recycling & making cuts to respond to the cost. Residents clog up the recycled waste stream with non-recyclables. Most Americans support recycling efforts, but what can or can’t be recycled puts the wrong materials in the stream. Processing facilities have a high amount of non-recycling waste, and it costs time to remove the materials and the rates get passed on to the cities. Curt Bucey, VP @ Strategic Materials, says municipalities have raised rates for the high costs to haul glass and it’s not being collected properly. Haulers were able to balance the glass costs with returns from materials such as cardboard, paper & plastics. China, a former big customer for cardboard, pulled back & lower oil prices dropped prices for plastics. A solution between haulers & cities are needed to challenges when creating waste removal bids. Haulers need to be upfront about increases if glass is not kept separate. Better educational materials could be used to encourage residents to separate their waste. Chicago tries to communicate bad recycling choices by a sticker system; if a waste hauler sees non-recyclable material in a resident’s bin, the hauler will place an orange warning sticker on it.” To read the article in its entirety, visit this link.

In another related Associated Press article, we were told the following: “A review of city records shows Austin received under $3 million for its recyclables, as processing costs were around $4.8 million. The city lost $1.9M last year and a $2.7M in the two previous years as recyclable materials have fetched less on the open market than the cost to process them. The Austin American-Statesman reports that if residents recycled more, it would be easier to profitably sell a higher volume of material locally, rather than ship it elsewhere.” The complete article is at this link.

I took it a step further to understand the junk and scrap related financial disaster in Austin. According to the city website austintexas.gov the monthly costs for residents are as follows, based on the size of garbage container needed[1]:

  • 24-gallon $16.90
  • 32-gallon $18.15
  • 64-gallon $23.30
  • 96-gallon $41.85

Personally, I’ve filled my approximately (50) gallon container in a week, therefore, a family of four would likely need the 96G unit for the $42 monthly cost, which seems reasonable. In addition, the add on other fees including: Extra bags of trash that do not fit in your trash cart with the lid closed must be placed next to the trash cart & tagged with an Extra Trash Sticker, which can be purchased at for $4 + tax. Extra bags without a sticker will be charged a per-bag fee of $9.60 + tax. Next, all residents in Austin, including homes, apartments, condos, pay a monthly $7.65 Clean Community Fee for services that keep Austin clean. To full webpage is at this link.
