recycling program between the city of New Braunfels and Comal County Wednesday was the first day of a pilot program between the city and Comal County Rural Recy cling to collect commercial cardboard for recycling Commissioner Moe Schwab said the amount of cardboard collected was good We wound up with 16 participants business Schwab said We got pounds of card board Next week we expect that to During the pilot program the county will pick up the cardboard at participating businesses in the city every Wednesday morning Don Ferguson assistant to the city manager said The pilot program is scheduled to last six weeks until Dec 17 At the end of the pilot program Schwab said he would ask commissioners court to extend the pro gram if it showed good results City Manager Mike Shands said the city decid ed to participate in the recycling pilot program because it offered several advantages Right now we have a residential recycling pro gram but we dont have a commercial recycling Shands said No 1 we wanted to see if there was an interest in the community for com mercial recycling which apparently there was Number two we wanted to do it with something that has commodity values and cardboard is worth some He added The obvious benefit to the city is that it doesnt go to the he said The benefit to the businesses is that it will be an additional pickup and it will not fill their dumpsters The city and businesses are helping to save the landfill and they have a stable commodity that can be reused so that you are not using virgin materials and not turning the cardboard into Ferguson said the going rate for cardboard is a ton John Holm plant manager of Barkel said his company wanted to take advantage of the recy cling program From the practical standpoint we want to be a good corporate Holm said We have to pay for every bit of trash we haul If we can reduce the waste stream through recycling then that is to our benefit and the benefit of the Holm said Barkel which manufactures upholstered furniture probably generates about eight truckloads of cardboard a year He said a majority of that cardboard came from Barkels suppliers Schwab said there was no extra cost to the tax payers for the pilot program because a county road department employee was handling the recy cling duties along with a parttime city employee The pilot program is a good example of coop eration between the two local governments Shands said Schwab said businesses throughout the county can still take their cardboard to the recycling sites set up in the county Any business in New Braunfels wanting to par ticipate in the program can contact Schwab at 6205508 CISD seniors get grad wishes SVHS to conduct ceremonies in S A Canyon stays home By DEMISE DZIUK KNIGHT Staff Writer Seniors from Canyon High School will maintain a tradition in May when they graduate at Cougar Stadium while seniors from Smith son Valley High School will start a tradition of receiving their diplomas in an indoor facility outside district lines Comal Independent School District trustees decided Thursday The board directed administra tors in July to reserve the Blossom Athletic Center in San Antonio for commencement exercises for both high schools However trustees vot ed Thursday to keep CHS gradua tion at Cougar Stadium for another year The move was suggested because of the constant threat of inclement weather If it rained on the day of graduation ceremonies were moved indoors to the gymnasium and the number of family members able to attend was limited Last month student representa tives from the two high schools addressed the CISD board The SVHS representative said the schools facilities were not large enough to accommodate the number of people wanting to attend and stu dents were in favor of moving the location to San Antonio The CHS representative said students were willing to risk having to move the ceremonies indoors if it meant con tinuing the tradition of receiving a diploma on the CHS football field Basically it boils down to Canyon High School seniors want it at Canyon High School and Smithson Valley High School seniors wanted to have it at Blossom Athletic Cen superintendent Jerry Major told the board If thats what the stu dents want and thats what the board wants thats what we ought to The board unanimously approved keeping CHS graduation at Cougar Stadium and moving SVHS cere monies to San Antonio However Major pointed out that changing the location would be considered again for the following years ceremonies He said administrators would begin trying to reserve Strahan Coliseum in San Marcos when a date is set Trustee John Clay said he sup ported the decision but wanted to make sure parents and students understood what their decision meant in the event of rain CHS principal Will Krieg said students had already been informed that they would only be allowed five or six tickets to attend gradua tion if the ceremonies were moved indoors He said he would reiterate that point to students and parents SVHS principal Dan Geroy said 300 letters explaining the move were sent to parents Of those he said he heard from two parents and both thanked trustees for the decision Last weekend of Wurstfest See schedule on Page 5A
