Gifted freezer containers were perfect for preserving this year’s sweet corn crop.
It is sometimes said that one man’s trash is another man’s treasure. But in today’s world we should strive to no longer produce any trash. At our house for example, we make every attempt to reuse, repurpose and recycle what we can to minimize the amount of trash we send to the landfill. And thanks to the successful recycling program in Osage County we are able to recycle most of our trash.
I remember when I was in junior high we had a young, enthusiastic science teacher that tried very hard to get the school and community involved in recycling. This was a new concept for all of us and I remember volunteering at the recycle center thinking we were saving the world. On Saturdays we unloaded sacks of newspapers and bags of aluminum cans as people drove through the center. This was pretty progressive thinking for central Kansas in the early 70s, or so we thought.
