SINGLE STREAM RECYCLING – Jackie Lewandoski
When you put your recycling out, do you have to sort it? Do you have several bins out of your tree lawn? There’s a company in Luzerne County who is trying to make things easier on you and more cost-effective for the fleet of recycling vehicles circling your town. Go inside the plant where single stream recycling gets sorted out.
Visit Northeast Recycling Solutions for more information.
PROTECTING THE SNAKES?? – Don Jacobs
Most folks are a little squeamish about snakes, let alone the big rattler! But environmentalists are telling us we must protect these native reptiles. Join Rick Koval and Don Jacobs as they scour the hillside for the sound that puts a shiver down your spine!
HYDROPONIC FARMING – Newswatch 16’s Sophia Ojeda
How do you get the yield of two and a half acres of crops out of a 30-foot by 50-foot area? Hydroponics of course. Meet two guys in Wyoming County who have built a system to do just that. It’s taking their Power To Save to new levels: land space, water usage, compost, recycled hardware. You’ll be impressed. To learn more, click here.
