The Flood Brothers Disposal Family is proud to salute our friend and long time coworker, Bill Fratto, as we celebrate with him and his Oakton Community College Owls after they claimed the first College World Series in school history. Fratto, who also attended OCC, has heaped praise on his team for bearing down in the toughest moments to claim victory over the 4 time defending champions of Tyler Junior College.
The Owls hooted their way to victory in the final game of a 3 game series, a 13 inning thriller that featured several late inning lead changes and ties. Fratto credits his sophomore upper classmen for their poise and leadership as they proudly bring the NJCAA Division III Championship back to Des Plaines, where they hope to make a new home for the trophy while growing the program.
From all of us at Flood Brothers, congratulations to the OCC Owls and to our buddy Bill!
With curbside pickup of recycling, it’s easy for everyone to do their part to help keep our earth clean and green. Since all recyclables go into one bin, called single-stream recycling, you don’t even have to sort it. We do! Paper, cardboard, plastic bottles, glass bottles, beverage and food cans, foil, etc. are collected and hauled to our Materials Recovery Facility where it’s sorted and packaged for reuse.
According to the EPA, food scraps and yard waste currently make up to 20 to 30 percent of landfills where it takes up space and creates harmful methane emissions. Only 3% of us compost food waste.
It’s that time of year again! When you’re out shopping for supplies and planning lunches keep in mind the three R’s to help reduce waste: REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE. Here are some quick tips and handy links for more information.
