Source Reduction and Landfills

All of us make solid waste – commonly known as garbage. The waste we make is managed for us. What we don’t reuse or recycle is burned (sent to an incinerator) or disposed of (sent to a landfill).  In the U.S., about 32.5% of solid waste is recycled, 12.5% is burned, and 55% is buried in landfills. The use of landfills has doubled since the 1960s creating a huge, smelly problem. Let’s get to know the modern-day landfill.

  • Landfills are built into or on top of the ground. Trash is isolated from the surrounding groundwater, air, and rain by a bottom liner and a daily covering of soil or other suitable material.
  • Landfills are designed to bury garbage, not break it down. With little oxygen and moisture available, garbage decomposes extremely slowly. For example, 40-year-old newspapers with easily readable print have been excavated from landfills.
  • Landfills can, do, and will fill up quickly and be forced to close.  http://www.greenvillesc.gov/PublicWorks/Landfills.aspx

So what can we do to help?  Recycling…not just putting your recycled items out on the curb, but also buying recycled items.  Purchasing products made from recycled materials completes the recycling process by creating the demand for the materials.  Check where you normally shop for recycled content products. Office supply, grocery stores and general markets carry such items. They aren’t hard to find!  http://www.greenvillesc.gov/PublicWorks/BuyRecycled.aspx    For more information on recycling varisous items, check out the city’s website at  http://www.greenvillesc.gov/PublicWorks/RecyclingA-Z.aspx

Backyard Wildlife Enhancement

If you want to make your backyard more enticing to wildlife, consider the 4 elements all wildlife need to survive:

  • Food:  Think year-round…not just bird feeders but plants that provide food.
  • Cover:  Plants that serve as food can also be cover; dense shrubs, brush piles, stone walls, hollow trees and logs.  Cover for feeding, hiding, courting and nesting.
  • Water:  Both for drinking and bathing.  Small ponds, a dripping hose or shallow dish, birdbath, etc.  Remember to keep the water fresh in summer and thawed in winter.  Sometimes water is even more critical and hard to find than food.
  • Space:  Space to reproduce and rear young.  Protection from harsh weather and predators.

Try looking at your yard from an animal’s point of view.  Thinking of removing that dead or dying tree?  The knotholes could provide the perfect home for a family of flycatchers, woodpeckers or squirrels.  That unsightly pile of dead brush could be safe cover for a rabbit.  And don’t forget about planting for wildlife…think diversity and year-round sources.  Don’t forget about bats!  Becoming increasingly popular, bats can consume up to 500 insects an hour, including mosquitos!  Did you know you can grow plants that will attract night-flying insects that bats like to eat?  Salvia, Silene, Phlox, Stock, Bachelor’s Buttons/Cornflowers, Spearmint, etc.  For more information on how to make your yard more attractive to wildlife, go to http://www.clemson.edu/extension/natural_resources/wildlife/publications/fs4_backyard_wildlife_enhancement.html


Summer Brings Unwelcome Visitors

We’ve had members bring to our attention the fact that with the summer season we are once again starting to get unsolicited requests for money and/or work…anything from yard work to fixing windshields.  Please be on the alert and remember that while some folks genuinely need and want work, others may be using this as an opportunity to catch you off guard, to get a closer look at or into your house (by asking for a glass of water, etc.).  Although we may want to help, Courtney Palmer, Greenville’s Crime Prevention Specialist, strongly advises against it. There is the risk that when you give money, they may come back.  Allowing access to your home and/or property not only allows an unintended view of what may be worth stealing but also brings a familiarity to your neighbors that this person has your permission to be on your property or in your home when you are not there.  Be extremely careful and do NOT hire random people for jobs.  If someone comes knocking on your door in a threatening manner or late at night, immediately call the police non-emergency number…271-5333.


Pets and Snakes

Last month we talked about the increase in the number of snakes in the area…likely due to the warm winter.  While at the emergency vet clinic a couple of weeks ago with one of my cats, I found that they are seeing an increased number of pets with snake bites.   The most obvious symptom was swelling around the mouth.  With that in mind, here is a list of precautions from ASPCA that may help lessen the chance of your pet getting bitten.

Avoid chance encounters with snakes:

  • Keep your yard tidy by clearing away undergrowth, toys and tools that make great hiding places for snakes.
  • Keep walkways clear of brush, flowers and shrubs.
  • Clean up any spilled food, fruit or bird seed, which can attract rodents—and therefore snakes—to your yard.
  • When walking your pet, keep him on a leash.
  • Steer your pet clear of long grasses, bushes and rocks.
  • Snakes can strike across a distance equal to about half their body length. If you see a snake, head back the way you came.
  • Familiarize yourself with snakes that are common in your area. In the event of a bite, identifying the type of snake may help with your pet’s treatment.   http://www.snakesandfrogs.com/

Recognize snake bite symptoms:

  • Local or general swelling
  • Bleeding
  • Intense pain
  • Low blood pressure
  • Dead tissue around the wound
  • Shortness of breath
  • Weakness
  • Renal failure

What to do if you think your pet’s been bitten:

  • Remember to stay calm.
  • Keep your pet calm, too, by limiting his activity.
  • If your pet was bitten on the neck, remove his collar.
  • If possible, keep the location of the bite below heart level.
  • Seek veterinary care for your pet immediately.
  • Treatment options such as cold packs, ice, tourniquets, alcohol, bleeding the wound and trying to suck out venom should not be attempted in place of getting your pet to the vet—they may just waste precious time.
  • Always keep your personal safety in mind and do not try to catch or kill a snake yourself.
  • Even if you think a snake is dead, never handle him. Some dead snakes are capable of inflicting a bite by muscle contractions.   http://www.aspca.org/pet-care/poison-control/snake-bite-safety-prevention-tips.aspx

Weather Tidbits

According to climate data, the average maximum temperature for Greenville in June is 85.5°F, the average low is 64.6°F and the average precipitation (rainfall) is 4.49”.  The record maximum for the period 1962-2006 was 100°F on June 5, 1985.  The record minimum was 40°F on June 1, 1972.  Record high rainfall was in 1994 with 10.12”.   Record minimum precipitation was 0.17 back in 1993.  On June 4, 1994, hail up to 2.75 inches in diameter fell for more than an hour near Gaffney and Jonesville.  http://www.dnr.sc.gov/climate/sco/index.php

Below-Average 2012 Hurricane Forecast:  This preseason forecast calls for 11 named storms, 6 hurricanes and 2 major hurricanes.  These forecast numbers are below the long-term average from 1950-2011 and well below the averages for the current active era from 1995-2011 (15 named storms, 8 hurricanes, 4 major hurricanes).   But remember, a classic example of the need to be prepared each year occurred in 1992. The season only produced six named storms and one subtropical storm.  However, the only one of those named storms to make landfall was Hurricane Andrew, which devastated South Florida as a Category 5 hurricane.   http://www.weather.com/weather/hurricanecentral/article/2012-hurricane-season-forecast_2012-04-24

Baby on Board!

The Greenville Zoo’s 6-year-old Masai giraffe, Autumn, is due to give birth to her first calf sometime this summer. Veterinary staff confirmed the pregnancy earlier this year through hormone analysis and will continue to monitor her progress through her 15-month gestation period.   “We were hoping to keep it a secret for a bit longer, but some things are just too big to hide,” said Greenville Zoo Director Jeff Bullock.  The giraffes are currently on a breeding loan. As part of the loan, Autumn came to the Greenville Zoo from the Franklin Park Zoo in Boston in 2007 to be paired with the zoo’s male giraffe, Walter, 7, from the San Diego Zoo. http://www.facebook.com/greenvillezoo


Flash From the Past

Last Month:  During the 1940’s and 1950’s, this train rain through McPherson Park, the City’s oldest park.  The train was built with funds from the Greenville Kiwanis Club and was enjoyed by thousands of children.  The train curved back and forth over the stream via bridges which are still there.  Most of the old train track route has now been converted to walking paths.



Those who have lived in Greenville a long time – recognize where the photo on the right was taken?  I’ll give you a clue…it was taken on Main Street.
