88 - CAPE G, Friday, Dec. 6- Dec. 12, 2002 Delaware's Coastal Cleanup results are impressive More than 1,600 volunteers par- ticipated in Delaware's 2002 Coastal Cleanup, SepL 14, and the final results have been tabulated. Volunteers using 1,118 trash bags, picked up 22,049 pounds of trash. A set of false teeth found at Fenwick Island tops the listof strange finds; others include a kitchen sink, license plate, bicycle frame, charcoal grill and car bumper. This year, volunteers cleaned up 32,475 cigarettes or cigarette filters, compared to 15, 109 last year. More than 4,850 hours of vol- unteer time was devoted to clean and protect Delaware's coastline and wildlife. The data collected by the volunteers at the 41 sites from Fox Point State Park to Fen- wick Island provide a snapshot of Delaware's 97 miles of coastline and will be used to reduce and eliminate trash and debris pollu- tion. Delaware participates in the International Coastal Cleanup DSWA honors Cape Region The Delaware Solid Waste Au- thority recently celebrated Ameri- ca Recycles Day by recognizing the top five recycling centers in each county. These 15 centers col- lected more than 14 million pounds of recyclables, which make up more than 35 percent of what is collected in the 141 Recy- cle Delaware centers statewide. Cities receiving top-county recog- nition included Wdmington, Clay- mont, Newark, Milford, Dover, Cheswold, Camden-Wyoming, Rehoboth, Seaford, Lewes, Mil- lville and Millsboro. "Our Recycle Delaware site sponsors play an important role in this process," said Lt. Gov. John Carney. "Without them, the pro- gram would not work. The 15 we honor account for more than a third of all recyclables collected by the Delaware Solid Waste Au- thority's 141 centers. It's a great thing and important for all Delawareans." During the program, DSWA al- so launched a new.pilot junk mail and mixed paper recycling pro- gram. Ron G. McCabe, vice chair- man of the board of directors for DSWA, announced that the de- partment will enter into a new re- cycling market aimed at the col- lection of commingled magazines, recycling centers advertising mail, school and office paper. All material collected will be sent and processed at the Mar- cal Paper Mills in Elmwood Park, N.J. "This program will be closely monitored and evaluated at the be- ginning of the calendar year. DSWA will evaluate this program by initially placing two junk mail containers at tl Phillips Park and Sports Authority Delaware Recy- cle Centers. These centers were selected based on space availability for an additional container and the vol- ume of material currently collect- ed," said McCabe. "Delaware's effort to recycle these materials is very important because this material represents more than 30 percent of all com- munity and business generated pa- per waste. Recycling this paper helps reduce solid waste disposal costs, saves natural resources and gives these materials a second life as useful. Marcal will use the re- covered paper as a feedstock to manufacture its line of sanitary bath tissue, towel, napkin and fa- cial products. "Marcal recycles with hundreds of communities and is pleased that Delaware has also decided to work with Marcal," said Peter Marcalus, senior vice president, Marcal. Rehoboth topped Sussex Coun- ty's award winners with 1,230,706 pounds recycled. Its award was accepted by Greg Ferrese. Ron Breeding accepted Seaford's award. It took second place with 855,368 pounds recycled. Lewes was third with 636,239 pounds re- cycled and its award was received by Larry McLaughlin. Ron McCabe accepted Mil- lville's award for its 588,434 pounds recycled, and Faye Lingo was on hand to receive Mills- boro's award for its 371,654 pounds recycled.
