Rib Cook-off recycling
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.
Heather Ashbridge, who started with Nevada State Development Corporation in 2008, previously served in several roles with the organization, including assistant vice president and loan officer. She is based in NSDC’s Reno office.
