["Local residents are asked to "make a game-time" decision to go green this Super Bowl, city officials said.

Super Bowl parties can generate a supersized amount of trash, with most of it expected at the Greater El Paso Landfill. Environmental Services estimated that thousands of aluminum cans, plastic beverage containers and cardboard material will pass the recycle bin and be thrown in the trash before, during and after the game.

In an effort to reduce waste, Environmental Services has some suggestions that will minimize the environmental impact created by Super Bowl weekend as follows:

• Purchase an energy efficient television, preferably Energy Star rated. Recycle the box it came in and dispose of the old TV or used electronics at any of the City’s Citizen Collection Stations.

• Before the game, set aside separate containers for trash and recycling. Aluminum cans, plastic bottles and cardboard packaged products are all recyclable. Purchase aluminum canned beverages; glass cannot be recycled in El Paso. Each aluminum can that is recycled saves enough energy to run a television for nearly three hours, that’s roughly the time it takes to watch the Super Bowl.

• Serve food on reusable plates that can be washed and used again. A move like this can reduce the amount of trash that may end up in the landfill."]

Okay you football fanatics. Get your Act together. It is a fact that most of the football fans here are D(f)allic fans and they are known to act stupid and crawling drunk during their games but this is the big one and you should behave yourselves with proper decorum. Take all the trash and put it in the proper trash or recycling barrels so that come Tuesday the trashman does not have a mixed barrel of trash and recycling materials.. Also make sure that once the trash is collect and placed into the proper recepticals that your wives are not in there especially the dallas fans.

Great idea you have on recycling. I don't visit this site much anymore maybe check in a couple times a week if something interesting and I know the poster like you I may respond. I have often wondered why the state of Texas has no type of deposits required when you purchase a recycle type of container like other states do? They go around and say don't meess with Texas as a litter campain. Why don't they enforce it charge deposits on aluminum cans, glass and plastic bottles with the amount of plasic water bottles anymore and broken glass mostly brown everywhere. Also plastic bags that blow everywhere. There was talk about that a couple of years ago in the city of ElPaso a few other cities in Texas charge deposits on plastic bags. The state could make several million dollars on non returned containers California and Oregon does. Glass can be recycled or put to use as a road base for roads. It seems the only recycling that goes on around here in ElPaso is copper that has been stolen what a shame.

Let me tell you something its posters like you is the reason this forum has gone to hell. Look if you have nothing to say about the article of the topic. Weather you agree or diagree fine. But don't make a complete fool of your self with your stupid remarks. Next I'am not gay or queer. All I was trying to do is respond to JWR's comment that I thought would be helpful to this area. Try and add something positive to this forum and try to clean it up. Or don't comment.I see you want to run your silly remarks. Except you don't have the balls to register your moniker. Hide in something? Got to go vist my other forums that are free of trash.
Good Idea

Great points you and the real JWR posted. This place of El Paso might be more pleasant to the eyes when there is not a lot of trash blowing around and it helps the land fill areas and my create more jobs and save old mother earth for awhile longer
