Recycling has become more expensive for residential and commercial users as of summer 2019, with MRF tip fees equal or greater than disposal fees in some cases, according to Colorado’s Department of Public Health & Environment. The agency reports drop-off programs are struggling (some have closed) and some MRFs are having trouble getting fiber or mixed plastics to market. In response, CDPHE has revised grants programs, conducted MRF outreach and worked to remind facilities of material turnover requirements.
The agency also conducted a survey, designed by The Recycling Partnership, of all state MRFs to identify top contaminants. Based on results, it has shared educational material focused on bags and food contamination.
Austin is and isn’t the first capital, plus it’s the last in more than one way. - To be precise, Austin was the last Republic capital of Texas prior to the 1848 annexation by the United States. Before that event took place, seven different cities had served as Republic capitals. They were Columbia, Houston, Galveston, Harrisburg, Washington-on-the Brazos, and Velasco.
Austin has more visitors per year than most people realize. - In the years following 2012, Austin has welcomed in excess of 20 million out-of-town visitors annually. During 2017 alone, the city logged 25.6 million people who came to enjoy what the city has to offer. The volume of visitors to Austin means it receives more visits from non-residents than the state of Hawaii or the ancient city of Rome, Italy.
There’s only one F1 racing championship held within the United States, and Austin has it. - Where should you go if you want a taste of a Formula 1 racing championship? Head to Austin. Circuit of the Americas, located at 9201 Circuit of the Americas Blvd, the facility has been open since 2012. Found just outside the city limits in Elroy, it boasts a capacity of 120,000.
In spite of all the racing action, Austin remains the largest city in the United States that’s not home to a professional sports team. - Racing events and championships may be common, but anyone looking for a major league sports team will be disappointed. There are options for college sports as well as minor league baseball to enjoy. With a seating capacity of over 100,000, the Darryl K. Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium is larger than the stadiums currently occupied by any NFL team.
Don’t Pooh Eeyore’s birthday! it’s a big deal in Austin. - The beloved Winnie-the-Pooh character has been the inspiration for a community party since the middle of the 20th century. Now entering its sixth decade, the celebration is held on the last Saturday of April. It’s said to be in commemoration of Eeyore’s birthday.
If you’re the type of who likes to imbibe as part of your evening out, Austin is the place to be. - It’s not just an urban legend that people in Austin enjoy their drink a lot; it happens to be the truth. If you’ve heard that Austinites tend to drink with abandon, that’s also true.
Big cities have food truck scenes and Austin is no different. - The city’s current scene can be traced back to the early years of the 1990s. Stared on South Lamar Street, the first wave was built around several family-owned taco carts that soon found success. Beginning with local construction workers who quickly spread the word, South Lamar became something of a mecca for anyone who wanted good food on the go.
