In 1996, if someone had made the statement that Americans would buy 8.3 million gallons of bottled water in 2006, we would have said they were 'off their rocker'. But guess what...Americans did buy 8.3 million gallons of bottled water in 2006. (BMC, 2007). Read on for more eye-opening info:
*About 25-40% of bottled water is actually bottled tap water - sometimes with additional treatment, sometimes not (NRDC, 1999). *More than 50% of Americans drink bottled water; a third drink it regularly (Howard, 2003). *Bottled water costs between 240-10,000 times more than tap water (CRI, 2007). *In 2005, 96% of bottled water sold in the U.S. was packaged in PET containers, the majority in single-serving sizes of one liter or less (CRI, 2007). *Producing PET bottles uses more than 17 million barrels of oil and produces over 2.5 million tons of carbon dioxide each year (Pl, n.d.). *For each gallon of water that goes into a PET bottle, two gallons of water are used to make the plastic bottles and in the purification process (Weaver, 2007; UCS, 2007). *462 million gallons of oil are needed each year to transport water bottles from the factory to the point of sale (SLC, 2007). *Only about 10% of plastic water bottles are recycled (UCS, 2007). Just thinking of all the oil and water - two natural resources that are 'in jeopardy' so to speak - used in the whole process, the pollution caused by the manufacture and transporting of said bottles plus the fact that only about 10% of the bottles are being recycled, should make us give serious thought to reducing our bottled water intake, right? Right!! Now, go enjoy a refreshing drink of water... from your tap !

The equivalent of 23 Semi-Trailers of mattresses have been save from landfilling as of February 4, 2019 !!!
The Lyon County Regional landfill is incorporating space saving measures to extend the usable life of the current landfill; thereby delaying costly phase construction. About 80% of a mattress and bed frame is recyclable, recovering the material for other uses such as carpet padding, textiles, and pallets. By recycling your mattress and bed frame you are also providing jobs for adults with disabilities through the Advance Opportunities. Lyon County is proud to partner with Advance to create jobs, and save valuable air space at the landfill.
Bring your mattress and box frame to the mattress recycling facility (the old hockey arena) by the Public Works building for recycling! There is a $7 charge that goes to facility costs and employee wages. If the mattress is filthy, damaged, or infested, it must go to the landfill for a $25 fee.
Small Effort. Big Impact. Recycle!
