ANNOUNCING A NEW NRRA Trial Program: “Solid Waste Staffing / Job Pool” Database”
ATTENTION: Experienced Solid Waste Operators / Transfer Station Attendants / Recycling Center Staff
As a potential service to our Members, as well as a resource for people looking for employment (full or part-time), NRRA is looking to create a database of available experienced Solid Waste / Transfer Station staff.
Initially, this database would include a list of available staff, their experience and what days/hours available to work. If you would like to be included on this list please send the following information to: email@example.com
- Town where you reside
- Experience: briefly describe your current and/or past position(s) and responsibilities
- Operator’s Licenses: include any operator licenses and/or levels achieved with expiration date (current or expired – if available)
- Other Information: briefly include any other pertinent information you feel important to convey
- Availability days / hours
- Telephone (best # to reach you)
- Email address
NRRA’s hope is this program will benefit:
- Member Town’s with their staffing challenges; The “staffing pool” would provide a resource to find short term and long term experienced personnel to meet their needs
- Job seekers looking for part time or full time employment
- Current working part time people may find an additional part time position at another facility.
- Retirees welcome
If you know of someone who might be interested and may not have received this announcement, please feel free to it pass along.
PGA (Processed Glass Aggregate) VIDEO AVAILABLE!!
On April 30th, 2015, NRRA and the Town of Wakefield met to discuss PGA and the role of Wakefield as an NRRA PGA Host Site.
Glass to Glass Recycling was the most popular way of recycling glass in the 80’s, 90’s and in early 2000.
Currently only 3 NH communities do glass to glass recycling; all other communities are either bringing the glass to PGA Host Sites, including glass in single stream or commingled containers, crushing on their own sites for local use or using as landfill cover.
In 2014 alone, 5,700 tons of glass was delivered to the 7 NRRA PGA Host Sites to be processed into aggregate.
The 6 sites in NH are Goffstown, Hopkinton, Keene, Littleton, New London and Wakefield and there is one in Springfield, VT.
Once crushed, the glass is used as road and sidewalk base or in drainage projects as a crushed gravel substitute.
This Video was sponsored by NH The Beautiful and, although a few years old, is still pertinent today.
Note: Porcelain sinks and toilets (with hardware removed) CAN be included in with the glass jars and bottles.
