Westmoreland Cleanways and Recycling (2021)

Westmoreland Cleanways and Recycling (WCR) established an apiary on the grounds to relocate an existing colony of honeybees living in a WCR building. Not only has the apiary assisted with pollinator conservation, but the bees provide pollination services to the WCR meadow and neighboring countryside. The apiary is also being used to promote and draw attention to the WCR center as a site for educational programs related to pollinators, pollinator habitat, bee biology, ecology, recycling, and agriculture.

 


Keep Lancaster County Beautiful (2021)

Lancaster County Solid Waste Management Authority is working with Spanish American Civic Association (SACA) Development Corporation to implement the Tiny Can demonstration project in SE Lancaster. The pilot project will install Tiny Cans every third house or so, on both sides of the street, for an entire city block, in three target areas. Homeowners with Tiny Cans installed agree to regularly empty the bags and dispose of them with their regular trash. This project will include extensive outreach with neighbors and SE organizations, including creation of a youth-produced anti-littering logo on each unit. A litter index will be used to measure success.
