A February 9, 2017 article by Cole Rosengren on Waste Dive discusses an innovative recycling process. “The OR Beverage Recycling Cooperative (OBRC), which operates the container deposit program, is launching a pilot program to gather glass bottles to be refilled by breweries.  The initial phase is expected to begin in 2 years and focuses on larger bottles. Once they expand the volume of “BottleDrop” redemption stations across the state it could gather more than 2M bottles annually. Since OBRC already has a $34M budget and 250+ employees to run the state’s deposit program, it’s in a good spot to host a pilot on this scale.  The redemption rate will be heightened to ten cents beginning in April as part of efforts to improve rates of return. OBRC has current relationships with the state’s various breweries so the potential for higher collection volumes gives this pilot an advantage for likely success. While various breweries already allow guests to bring in large growlers for refilling, the option isn’t widely adopted for different bottle types.

Reverting to the model of refillable bottles common for beer and soda makers, could assist recyclers that have been struggling to deal with mixed-quantities of glass. The market for glass among manufacturers remains high in some states, but the continuous shift to one-stream has led to reduced quality and mixed colors are less valuable. Some organizations, like Alpine Recycling in CO, invested in further advanced sorting equipment to resolve these issues. Last year, a lengthy list of companies from the beverage & waste industries also created the U.S. Glass Recycling Coalition and has been working with states developing new solutions. Meanwhile, a group of local municipalities have ceased their collection of these the material until local markets improve. The newest additions to the list are New Orleans and Knoxville.”  The complete article is available here.

In the January 2, 2017 edition of Auto News, Richard Truett posted a story about the demand for auto body workers in Columbus, OH:  “On Monster, the giant national career website, more than 1,000 auto dealers, independent body shops, hot-rod shops and other businesses are running help wanted ads for body-shop technicians. There’s a nationwide shortage of skilled body repair technicians, painters and auto body prep experts that rivals the shortage of service department repair technicians. To help offset the ongoing shortage of body-shop techs, the Collision Repair Education Foundation, a nonprofit organization in Hoffman Estates, Ill., is kicking off its second year of nationwide career fairs aimed at attracting high school and college students.

The fairs, staffed by new-car dealers, body-shop supply companies, independent body shops and suppliers, are scheduled for 14 major cities starting early next month. More fairs are scheduled for the fall. In 2016, each event attracted roughly 200 students, said Brandon Eckenrode, the foundation’s development director. At the one-day fairs, held at schools, training facilities, hotels and other locations, students have the opportunity to meet with potential employers, including body-shop managers, who explain the career path from school to work.

Many students, Eckenrode said, are surprised to learn how much they can make if they become experts at painting cars. “I give students a pep talk when I meet them before they enter the fair and tell them there are people who paint cars that easily make over six figures. But that’s not where you are going to start,” Eckenrode said. Like technician trainees who start out doing menial work such as oil changes and tire rotations, collision-repair students also begin their careers performing jobs that don’t require specialized training, such as prep work that requires removing trim and broken components and cleaning the outside of the vehicle to get it ready for body repairs. In these jobs, they learn how to use tools and how to follow proper procedures.

Although attendance at the fairs has been strong — one held in November in Columbus, Ohio, drew nearly 400 students — the foundation also works with schools in markets it doesn’t serve. “We reach out to schools and ask that they refer any student looking for full-time work. We gather their information and have them create a student resume, which we use to build a database. Then we distribute that to employers,” Eckenrode said.  The foundation doesn’t yet have firm data on the number of students who have found collision-repair jobs through the fairs, but Eckenrode says they are working.  “Part of the fun of my job is that I have met students at 10 a.m. who are unemployed and they walk out at 2 p.m. with several job offers because of the need that is out there.” The full story is available here.

On Feb 17, 2016 a story compiled by Kristin Leigh titled ‘Auto shops accused of dumping waste into local creeks’ on fox13memphis.com reported the following: “A local tire recycling site is accusing auto shops of contributing to the problem. FOX13 received a complaint about blight and litter on Hwy 51 in Nonconnah Creek. Tires, used auto scrap, full trash bags and waste is scattered along the creek’s banks. The dumping site is across the street from Liberty Tire Recycling Center. Kristin Leigh asked employees at the facility if they know who is contributing to the problem. Calvin Johnson, an employee at the facility, says auto shops don’t want to pay the fees to dump tires at the facility, so they illegally dump them throughout the city.

The City of Memphis & Liberty Tire Recycling work together to give shops a place to dispose of these items. It costs $10/ton to use the facility. The Liberty contract with the city requires that the company keep track of businesses that use the facility, and inform the city. Employees at Liberty say city officials can figure out what businesses may be dumping illegally via process of elimination. FOX13 provided the city with pictures of the dumping ground and officials will investigate. Arlenia Cole, a city spokesperson, says the city has workers focused on cleanup efforts and Public Works is cleaning these sites while discouraging such activity by utilizing enforcement strategies. Cole says the city spends more than $2M each year removing illegally dumped items. Illegal dumping violators face arrest and fines, in addition to restitution, employees at Liberty say violators aren’t held accountable. To report illegal dumping, you can use the 311 call center or the 311 app.” The complete article is available here.
