Aug. 16—TROY, N.Y. — Mayor Patrick Madden recently announced that the city will host a free materials collection event for Collar City residents to recycle electronics. Paper shredding and tire disposal will also be available at the event. The event is scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 10, and will be held at the Troy Resource Management Facility (former Alamo site) located at the corner of E. Industrial Parkway and Main Street. Registration is required to participate in the event and is limited to Troy residents only.

"Recycling electronics and other non-biodegradable items helps protect our environment and reduce costs for solid waste management by diverting these recyclable items from local landfills. I encourage Troy residents to register for this useful program to declutter their homes and properties and help keep Troy clean and green this fall," Madden said.

Newsom: California must boost water recycling, desalination

  Newsom: California must boost water recycling, desalination SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — California should invest tens of billions of dollars in water recycling, storage and desalination over the next two decades to shore up its supply as the state gets drier and hotter, Gov. Gavin Newsom said in a proposal released Thursday. It comes as drought continues to grip the U.S. West and the state prepares to lose 10% of its water supply by 2040, according to projections by the Department of Water Resources. The Democratic governor discussed the proposal at the construction site of a plant to remove salts from river water that should be fresh, the type of project he said the state needs more of in the coming years.

"Everyone has old computers, televisions, and other electronic devices stored in their basement or garage. Now is the perfect opportunity to clear these unwanted items from your home. We're excited to offer this free recycling event to Troy residents and families this September and invite the public to register," Deputy Mayor Chris Nolin added.

Online registration is available at www.troyny.gov/electronics. Registration is first come, first served. Each participant will be assigned a drop-off time via email. This will keep wait times as short as possible. Emails will be sent approximately one week before the event. Registrants should check spam and junk folders for an email from [email protected].

Residents without access to the internet may register in person at City Hall, or by calling Recycling Specialist Naomi Pitkin at (518) 279-7313.

Note: Each registrant may bring one television or computer up to 25 pounds at no charge. For every additional five pounds, there will be a $5 charge. Participants should note there will be a disposal fee for tires:

* Bicycle: $1 / tire

* Passenger vehicle: $5 / tires

* All other tires (size dependent): $10 — $100

Inoka Card Game Overview .
Imagine you have a rock. And paper. And scissors. You’d have a classic game you could play with your hands. But what if you had three rocks – small, medium, and large? And three pieces of paper – small, medium, and large? And three scissors – you get the idea. How would the game be played? That’s the interesting concept in the newish game, Inoka, by XYZ Game Labs. Rock, Paper, Scissors (or sometimes called Roshambo) is typically for two players only.
