It times sews Stet e it Ittner by Debbie Meyer times news writer Cumberland try to imagine a pile of Glass weighing nearly three quarters of a million pounds that show much members of boy scout troop 16 have collected since they began a recycling project 15 years ago. The idea of recycling Glass As a Means to achieve financial self sufficiency can be credited to Louie Griggs troop 16 committee chairman. A it was pretty much generated not Only As a Means to attempt to make Money for the scouts but also As a Way to help clean the environment a scoutmaster Tim Thomas explained. A Titi admit i Shook my head when Louie came up with the he continued. The troop sponsored by memorial Hospital has a Small membership a around to boys. With the help of area residents fraternal organizations troop committee members and parents the boys managed to turn in 3,300 pounds of Glass the first year. A initially we had to haul our Glass to Keyser got to be a problem a Thomas said. A we crushed it and stored state penal Complex Here would be Boon to Economy editors note this is the second Story in a three part series on a 2,500 bed state penal Complex which Maryland corrections officials Are hoping to contract in Allegany county by the year 1995. By Butch Antolini times news writer Annapolis a local House of delegates member Kevin Kelly asked Washington county lawmakers an interesting question during fridays meeting which entered on the possible siting of a massive state prison Complex in Allegany county. A what would happen if the state came in tomorrow and said they were going to remove the prisons in Washington county what would the Public sentiment be a Kelly inquired. A i m sure there would be a great Deal of discontent a Washington county Delegate Donald f. Munson replied. A a few people might be Happy but the loss of jobs would be very substantial and the trickle Down effect to the area stores and businesses would be. Terrible a a it would be disastrous a interjected Bishop Robinson Maryland Secretary for Public safety and correctional services. Three state correctional centers built in the same Washington county compound House More than 5,600 of the states inmates. While the penal Complex certainly helps to serve some of Maryland s prison needs it More importantly nerves As one of the largest in Plover in Washington county providing nearly 1,290 jobs hat to a $60 million annual payroll. Combine that with the spinoff and it figures out to better than a $100 million economic boost every year. A a let a face it. It s big business a Robinson stated. A a it a the fastest growing construction Industry in the a so what we re really talking about Here is a major Industry a Allegany county general Assembly delegation chairman Casper Taylor or. Said. A absolutely a noted Robinson. A what it actually is is a Small City. Every conceivable service is built into a prison. Water sewers education health care food banking mail service. Everything in a prison is done the same As you would in a City except for one thing you done to collect Robinson is proposing to build a Multi faceted prison Complex somewhere in Allegany county. Nearly 1,000 jobs including correctional officers professional staff educators health care providers food service and laundry personnel clerks and typists would be the direct result of a state prison locating in Allegany county and it will carry a yearly payroll of approximately $50 million. Tack on the multiplier effect continued on air it in 55-gallon Drums. Once Brocks started to take it locally it made our Job the troops highest yield of Glass was in 1977 with an amazing 105,270 pounds collected. Totals amassed in recent years have dropped Back to under 40,000 pounds. The increase of plastic packaging see a As to be the biggest influence on this decline according to Thomas. A we Are satisfied to put 20 tons a year away a he indicated. The operation has expanded to include two drop off Points. Anyone interested in contributing Glass to the troops coffers May Deposit it behind the residence located at 626 Brookfield Avenue or at 231 Maple Street.

A of course we have to spend Money to make Money a the scoutmaster said. A we keep a trailer As Well As the forklift the scout troop delivers approximately one trailer full of Glass a week to Brocks. Since the Glass Market has been relatively steady in providing consistent profits to recyclers. Troop 16 has achieved the goal set Forth by Griggs so Many years ago. A we have not asked our sponsors for a Nickel since beginning the recycling project a Thomas revealed. A one of the big reasons we be been so Happy with it is that we have Money Here to step in and help the boys who can to afford summer Camp registration a he added. Thomas indicated that All funds raised through recycling Are put Back into activities to Benefit the boys or the Community. Recycling profits Are also used toward purchasing Accident insurance required by the National boy scouts of America. Patches and awards presented to the boys and annual registration fees. The boys have reaped additional benefits through their hard work. Members of troop 16 have travelled twice to the Philmont scout ranch in Cimarron n.m., both by rail and air. The group also conducted a car trip to the land Between the lakes scouting facility in Western Kentucky about to years ago. Keeping with the scouting tradition of helping the Community the troop makes annual donations to the toys for happiness Campaign and has contributed canned goods to the food pantry As Well. A group of 11-to-18-year-old boys can Only do so much when it comes to hauling the monstrous Mounds of Glass they accumulate. A the biggest Success of the troop and its recycling project has been through the efforts of the committee a Thomas stated. Once the boys have sorted the Glass by color and rinsed it off a group of 13 men and women assist them in lifting the Drums and transporting them to the collection Center.
