Keep Alliance Beautiful has been contacted by Protainer of Minnesota that their new cardboard recycling trailers will arrive on Tuesday, September 10th at about 8:00 a.m. These trailers were purchased with a Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality Waste Reduction and Recycling Grant for $18,340. One of the trailers will be placed at the Alliance Plaza Shopping Center and one will be placed at the Farmer’s Coop Site on North Box Butte Avenue in Hemingford once they have been licensed. The other smaller trailers may be placed on the east side of Alliance or it may be used to station at various businesses once day out of the week for use.
These trailers are different from the current trailer as they are self-dumping. KAB will be doing a short demonstration of the trailers on Wednesday morning at 9:00 a.m. at the Recycling Center for those who wish to see them “in action.”
