Dolphyn Diary #292: 07 January 2019

Due to the recent spate of break-ins on boats, the club has taken additional precautionary security measures and Members / boat owners are urged to please be vigilant and take the necessary precautions in pre-empting an attempt on your boat. We encourage Members to install alarms on their boats as a deterrent.

MONTHLY MUSIC ON THE LAWNS

We will be having monthly live music on the lawns - keep an eye out for the next one.

Benefits of Recycling

* Reduces the amount of waste sent to landfills and incinerators


* Conserves natural resources such as timber, water and minerals


* Increases economic security by tapping a domestic source of materials


* Prevents pollution by reducing the need to collect new raw materials


* Saves energy


* Supports manufacturing and conserves valuable resources


* Helps create jobs in the recycling and manufacturing industries

Plastics

Of all the different materials we toss in the trash, plastics cause by far the biggest problem. They last a long time in the environment without breaking down—sometimes as much as 500 years. They're very light and they float, so plastic litter drifts across the oceans and washes up on our beaches, killing wildlife and scarring the shoreline. The only trouble is, plastics are relatively hard to recycle. There are many different kinds of plastic and they all have to be recycled in a different way. There's so much plastic about that waste plastic material doesn't have much value, so it's not always economic to collect. Plastic containers also tend to be large and, unless people squash them, quickly fill up recycling bins.

All told, plastics are a bit of an environmental nightmare—but that's all the more reason we should make an effort to recycle them! Different plastics can be recycled in different ways. Plastic drinks bottles are usually made from a type of clear plastic called PET (polyethylene terephthalate) and can be turned into such things as textileinsulation (for thermal jackets and sleeping bags). Milk bottles tend to be made from a thicker, opaque plastic called HDPE (high-density polyethylene) and can be recycled into more durable products like flower pots and plastic pipes.

Note plastic # 1 – #5 can be recycled, all others must be thrown in the general waste bins.

Let’s save the planet!
