The "Knockout Game" it is a growing trend in our area.

I have heard about this and after the stabbing yesterday by Subway, I'm sure it is bound to happen here.

Just be alert when walking on main street or any where else.

Impact of Hudson Baylor

Today I had a rep from Royal carting come in to renew my dumpster agreement which I must have by law in Beacon. In conversation he said a few things I did not know. 1) Trash from beacon does not go to a landfill, it is incenderated. 2) Beacon has seen a 30% increase in recyclables due to the new bins. The reason for the new bins is that all recycle now goes to Hudson Baylor, which does not require seperated recycle. Which the old county plant does.
