Default By Rob Gogan. Harvard July Recycling Update.


What broadcasts Sunday mornings or other public service broadcasts have segments
about local recycling?...

A similarly robust program needs to be further developed around
the MIT neighborhoods
http://diswww.mit.edu/menelaus/reuse/27082


Like Harvard's recycling program, what is there around the MIT
neighborhoods already that people might keep in mind?...

HARVARD JULY RECYCLING UPDATE:
MOVE-OUT CORNUCOPIA!
Over 100 tons of reusables collected from student Houses & dorms sent an unprecedented
quantity of useful items to charities and needy individuals.

Harvard
Habitat for Humanity raised almost $2,000 at their first-ever Summer School
move-in sale (mark your calendars for Stuff Sales on 8-23 and the weekend
of Sept. 6-8!);

Fresh Pond Enrichment Project broke $1,000 in sales of
moving boxes at Winthrop House, H.A.N.D. helped us divert over 12 tons of
clothes to benefit the Pine Street Inn and University Lutheran Homeless
Shelter, and heroic efforts of the Resource Efficiency Program brought
donations of health and beauty aids to such an extent that First Church
Shelter now has enough shampoo, shaving cream and soap to last through
October!

Thanks particularly to Robert Wolfreys and the Dorm Crew, Jordan
Thomas, Dan Michalow, Julie and the rest of Harvard Habitat for Humanity,
all the FAS House Superintendents, Judy Kokesh, Roy Lauridsen, Jyoti Rana,
Joao Amado, Wayne Carbone, Chris Queen and hundreds of others!...

SURPLUS
HEROES this month donated another record amount of reusable furniture in
June!

Thanks particularly to HLS's Becky Andreasson and Richard Keyes,
HPRE's Jack DeMelo, HDS's Roy Lauridsen (again), FAS's Richard Picott,
KSG's Pete Atkinson, and last but not least, HBS's Kris Martinez and Mark
Johnson!

Beneficiaries included a number of Harvard departments plus
Cambridge Chinese Cultural Center, Bread of Life, Vinfen, Boston High
School, Boston Hamilton House Inc., Smith Academy, Food for Free, and
Durrell Hall Theater of Cambridge YMCA...

.... ASIAN DEMAND FOR PAPER
holds steady; "Resource Recycling" reports that decreased demand for paper
because of SARS-induced mill shutdowns in China have been counterbalanced
by increased demand in Korea and Thailand, where box manufacturers are
trying to pick up the slack.


CAMPUS NATURE WATCH:
WHITE SQUIRREL hops across Bryant Street near #5;
its gray cousin beside 29 Garden Street sways under the heft of a red delicious
apple atop a trash dumpster, rotating the apple as it nibbles;

SEEN IN
BUSCH COURTYARD: male CARDINAL eats a caterpillar on one of the courtyard
bench arms in the Busch courtyard;

ROSES bloom in dense profusion,
HOUSE
SPARROWS bathe both in water bird bath but also take dustbaths in gravel
paths;
three PURPLE FINCHES chase each other from red geraniums in window
boxes to back of bronze lion statue to thick ivy on walls;
RED TAILED HAWK
perches atop Memorial Hall weathervane...

other HAWKS screech and glide
over Brattle Street at lunchtime.
Single red-tailed basks atop Memorial
Church's weather vane, sometimes for hours consecutively, even as the wind
blows the vane around, circling around slowly...

TIGER SWALLOWTAIL
butterfly tastes nectar of blooming AMERICAN LINDEN tree next to McKinlock
Hall& EUROPEAN LINDEN and TREE OF HEAVEN drop fragrant blossoms all over
campus& CHIMNEY SWIFTS chirp and circle over Lamont, Quincy St, Pusey
Library, and the Barker Center& juvenile MOCKING BIRD flies the length of
the Barker, settles in a low tree and then flies into the Yard& between
Widener and Weld numerous feathers and down of a pigeon attest to the work
of a hawk; shorn sparrow wing on Porter Square station steps shows where
another hawk took a meal next to Harvard Smithsonian Center for
Astrophysics....
