Resource Recovery, Restoration

Monthly guest Merry Rankin of the ISU Office of Sustainability brings in Superintendent of Ames Resource Recovery Plant Bill Schmidt and Ames public relations officer Susan Gwiasda to share stories from the first-ever--and hugely successful--Rummage Rampage event over the July 29-31 weekend. This community-wide rummage sale was designed to divert furniture and other usable household items from the landfill during the rental move-out date.

Ursula Ruedenberg goes to the Iowa State Fair to check out the FFA's Agricultural Machinery Restoration Competition. Henry Corbin of Nevada describes the antique washing machine he refurbished (in pink!), and Nevada FFA members Eric Fevold, Chance Steffes, and FFA state secretary Chase Kusel, describe their projects as well.

This month's Community Service Appreciation segment by Kay Puttock features Devita Harden of the local Ames NAACP chapter. President Edna Clinton will be featured next week.
