New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - November 14, 1995, New Braunfels, Texas 2 O Herald-Zeitung O Tuesday, November 14,1995 Recycling a necessity for Texas By DENISE DZIUK Staff Writer At the end of 1992, Texas had an average of 20.3 years of landfill capacity remaining. By 1996, it is expected that there will only be 18 years left. In an effort to increase public awareness and participation in recycling programs, Wednesday has been designated as Texas Recycles Day. “I think it’s an effort to make everyone aware that they need to recycle. It’s very important because of the amount of recyclables that we can keep out of landfills,” said County Commissioner “Moe” Schwab, who organized rural recycling in Comal County. Schwab said after two months, the participation rate in the rural recycling program has reached IO percent. He said the participation rate is continuing increase, and 200 to 250 new households begin recycling every two weeks. He said the amount of recyclable material is also increasing. He said 22.6 tons were collected in the program’s first month, which was a 17 percent diversion rate. In the second month, the amount collected totaled 45.2 tons, which was a 35 percent diversion rate. The goal of the program was to reach 15 percent diversioh for the year. “That’s what we in rural recycling have diverted and kept out of our landfills. That’s the important thing,” said Schwab. The county is involved in several aspects of recycling. These include rural recycling, in-house office paper recycling, Don’t Bag It program through the Extension Service, which promotes putting yard clippings in mulch piles, and the household hazardous waste collection program with the city. Another program the county is involved in is the collection of used oil and oil filters. Schwab said people can take the oil or the filters to the Road Department on Highway 46. The filters are drained and crushed, and the oil is collected in a large container to be given to a company. For information on recycling locations, call 620-5501. Support for CL reading program strong By DAVID DEKUNDER Staff Writer Jo Ann Landers, community coordinator for the Canyon Lake Adult Reading Program, considers it a success when one person with a reading problem is helped by the program’s tutors. “I feel if we even reach two or three, or even one person a year, it has been worth the effort,” Landers said. For three-and-a-half years, the Canyon Lake Adult Reading program has served adults who want to overcome their reading problems and learn how to function as informed citizens by learning how to read.

Landers said the tutors and students meet in a place free of distractions, usually the Tye Preston Memorial Library' in Sattler.

Fridays far a limited time education have really helped us. It is definitely ajoint venture from people who are concerned about literacy.” The voluntary organization receives most of their support and materials from the Tri-County Adult Education Cooperative, which serves Comal, Kendall and Guadalupe counties. “The students in our program are intelligent,” Landers said. “But because of a lack of education and opportunities, they have never been given the chance to learn how to read. The people in this program felt the need to learn how to read. Besides, nobody will help you unless you ask for it.” For more information, call 964-3744. $ 1.75 IOOLL CANYON LAKE AIRPORT Located on the shores of beautiful Canyon Lake. 2,600 ft. lighted runway, new FBO with fireplace, big screen TV, pilot shop, picnic area, volleyball court, shuttle service.
