Recycle Moore “Take us to your Litter” Wins Big

The City of Moore was presented two top honors from the Keep Oklahoma Beautiful program at the 2012 Environmental Excellence Awards held on November 1, 2012.

Keep Oklahoma Beautiful presented Moore leaders with the award for Government Programs in cities or counties over 30,000. The evening ended with the Recycle Moore “Take us to your Litter” campaign taking home the “Best of the Best” Award.

The “Take us to your Litter” campaign was started in 2011 to coincide with the opening of the city’s renovated drop off recycling center. The center began basic operations in February 2010 and in November 2011 the center opened it new offices and drive thru services to citizens.

“The center and its new services provided the perfect opportunity for an ‘Out of this World’ marketing campaign to help us educate our citizens about the benefits of recycling,” stated City Manager Steve Eddy.

America Recycles Day

America Recycles Day is a national campaign for “Keep America Beautiful,” and is the only nationally recognized day and community-driven awareness event dedicated to promoting and celebrating recycling in the U.S. Since its inception in 1997, communities across the country have participated in ARD to educate, promote environmental citizenship, and encourage action.

The City of Moore will be hosting special recycling opportunities event at the Moore Recycling Center on Saturday, November 17th located at 400 N. Telephone Rd. The drive thru recycling service will have expanded hours of operation, from 9 am – 5 pm. This event will include:

Onsite Electronics Recycling, from 9 am – 5 pm
• Onsite Paper Shredding and Recycling, from 9 am – 12 pm
• Drive-thru Recycling Operations, from 9 am – 5 pm.

The City of Moore urges residents to be an involved partner in helping to celebrate the great strides that we have made in environmental protection over the past 30 years. One simple way to help the environment is to simply follow the 3 R’s – Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.

Citizens asked to Conserve Water

Due to the lack of rainfall plus a stretch of extreme heat in the forecast, residents and businesses are encouraged to use water wisely. City Officials are asking citizens to follow voluntary odd-even water conservation measures to reduce daily peak consumption by all City of Moore water customers.
Outdoor watering should be limited based on customer street addresses. Customers with addresses ending in odd (1,3,5,7,9) numbers should water on odd numbered calendar dates, customers with addresses ending in even (0,2,4,6,8) numbers should water on even numbered calendar dates only.

The odd/even watering rotation program will reduce the incidents of low water pressure that are unavoidable when everyone waters at once.

Here are a few ways to best use water outdoors during extreme heat:
• Remember brown Bermuda grass is not dead. It is dormant and will come back.
• Consider drip irrigation for slow, thorough watering closer to the roots.
• Concentrate watering efforts on sensitive plants, trees and shrubs. Watering the flower beds and landscaping close to the house will also water the foundation.
• Reset sprinkler system frequencies to less time, less often and during early morning hours – preferably between midnight and 4 a.m. Watering during the day causes most of the water to evaporate and thus defeats the purpose.
• Make sure the sprinkler is aimed at the lawn not the street or sidewalk.
