Recycle Ann Arbor: Trash is their business

Late night Burger King diners Betty Rice and Renee Mann got a lit-
tle more than they could digest Tuesday night. Sitting by the window in
the Maynard eaterie, their midnight snack was interrupted by an
urgent knocking on the panes above them. Casually glancing up at the
disturbance, the women's eyes caught a set of buns - but not the kind
that ordinarily hold burgers. No one else was around to receive the
auspicious greeting as the women were the only customers at the time.
Rice later remarked that she was glad she had finished eating her
sandwich before the energetic exhibitionist came along.
Yesterday's story about course evaluations contained an error.

Academic Counseling. We regret the mistake.

On October 7, 1978 the Michigan Supreme Court denied a request by
three University students to rule on their right to register to vote in
Ann Arbor. The students were appealing a decision by the Circuit
Court upholding the city's refusal to grant the students permission to
register in the city. Also that day, 2,000 people marched through
Baltimore chanting and waving flags in support of nine persons
charged with burning their draft cards.
Happenings .. .

It will be mostly cloudy and cool on this first football Saturday in Oc-
tober. Those who are lucky enough to be seated in the right sections of
Michigan Stadium may be albe to avoid the widely scattered showers
that are expected to descend upon us today. High temperatures will be
in the low 50s, with a low in the mid- to upper 30s. While today's game
has you shivering in the stands, take heart: the folks in the Upper
Peninsula will be freezing their NCAAss's off under a mixture of snow
and rain.

Rich Ruyle and Jonathan Dreyfuss
have to put up with a lot of garbage
these days, but they don't mind.
Trash is their business. The pair
operates Recycle Ann Arbor, a non-
profit organization which offers free
house-to-house collection of recyclable

RUYLE, A University graduate, and
Dreyfuss, a senior in the School of
Natural Resources, started the
operation last September after noticing
the absence of a waste recycling pick-
up program in the city.
"I worked for a recycling
organization in Boulder, Colorado a

couple of years back," Dreyfuss said,
"and I wanted to start a similar
program in Ann Arbor. I knew Rickwas
also interested, and after tossing a few
ideas back and forth, we formed
Recycle Ann Arbor, and have been ex-
tremely successful in our first year."
It took eight months to lay the groun-
dwork for the operation, but in May the
first pick-up went successfully. There
have beep ten subsequent trash
gatherings, twice a month, in the area
of west Ann Arbor bordered by Main,
State and Liberty streets. The collec-
tions take place on the first and third
Saturdays of each month, the next one
slated for today.
"WE ARE VERY optimistic right
now," explains Ruyle, "we have a 10 to
15 per cent participation rate on the
west side, and we not only think that
this will increase sharply, but also hope
to expand city-wide within one year."
Participants in the program are

'asked to do three things: put glass,
steel, and aluminum in separate con-
tainers, which will not be taken, bundle
all newspapers, magazines and paper,
and place all the materials at their
driveways before 8 a.m. on Saturday.',
The trash is collected in three flatbed
trucks by the two directors and any
volunteer help they can recruit.
According to the directors, recycling
is an important service, because it con-
serves both energy and valuable
resources, minimizes environmental
degradation, and saves city money in
collection and disposal costs. "We can
no longer afford to view refuse as
waste. It is a resource that must be'
utilized. Our goal is to make sure
citizens are aware of the importance
and implications of conservation and of
resource recovery from solid waste."
THREE ARE three other recycling
agencies in Ann Arbor, wpich offer only
drop-off stations for materials.

prosecutor urged a federal jury to
ignore the civil rights accomplishments
of Rep. Charles Diggs (D-Mich.) in
deciding whether he illegally inflated
the salaries of his aides so they could
pay his personal and office debts.
Prosecutor John Kotelly said the
evidence is "overwhelming" that

Diggs was indicted on 11 counts of
mail fraud and 18 counts of filing false

payroll vouchers, with each amount
carrying a maximum penalty of five
years in prison. Mail fraud also carries
a fine of up to $1,000 and filing false
vouchers; $10,000.
Diggs admitted he gave raises to his
employees and they paid expenses out
of their salaries but insisted they did so

"If this were a testimonial dinner,
one could applaud Congressman Diggs
for his accomplishments," Kotelly said.
"But this is not a testimonial dinner."
