Rib Cook-off recycling

NNBW staff

John Ascuaga’s Nugget, Castaway Trash Hauling and Keep Truckee Meadows Beautiful said last week they recycled 20 tons of material from this year’s Best in the West Rib Cook-off. The result was a 33 reduction in the amount of trash that was sent to a landfill compared with the previous year.

More than 18,000 pounds of organic material was transported to RT Donavan Enterprises, a composting facility in Spanish Springs, and approximately 22,000 pounds of cardboard and glass were processed and transported to recycling facilities.
