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.
