RE: New RUMPKE Recycling Carts
Dear SG Residents:
Please excuse the recent lack of communication surrounding the
replacement of Rumpke Recycling bins with covered carts. The attached
information should have been communicated to residents prior to
delivery, however there was a miscommunication.
Please review the trifold (see below) which provides an overview of the
new recycling program which the City of Seneca Gardens has adopted. Note
that the carts hold three times the amount of recyclable materials and
will now be collected bi-weekly instead of weekly. A schedule of
collection dates is also included. Residents should continue to wheel
carts to the roadside for pickup. The first pickup of the new carts will
be April 16, 2012.
few of the benefits of this program are as follows:
capacity for recycling at each residence
protect materials from wind and rain – enhancing aesthetics in SG
allow easier portability for residents
with Rumpke automated collection trucks helps keep down cost of
recycling/garbage pickup for all residents
The decision was made with the overall best interest of our neighborhood
in mind. We believe this will be best for our residents and neighborhood
in the long run.
Empty red bins will be removed on April
16 if placed at the curb.
Thank you for your cooperation.

About Massive Bowman Field Tree Removal Plan
Bowman Field plans to greatly expand their air
space claim which will go one mile out in four directions from the end
of their two runways.
The Louisville Regional Airport Authority will not
say how many trees will be removed or topped, but my estimate is we will
lose the canopy of 1000 trees. Large areas of Seneca Park, Big Spring,
Landor, Drayton, McCoy, and significant large trees in Seneca Gardens
and Kingsley will be topped, removed, or young trees butchered to
prevent them into becoming canopy trees. This is huge.
If this concerns you, this is what you can do.
donating for our legal services to resist. Donations can go to
Kentucky Resources Council, POB 1070, Frankfort, KY 40602. A
special fund is being set up for Leslie Barras, an experienced
attorney to represent us in the historic property and landscape
review process required under federal law for this proposal. Please
make checks payable to KRC and designate your donation by writing in
the subject line: “Bowman Field-Historic.” Please also consider
giving to the KRC generally because they will work on behalf of the
nearby residents in the environmental review process required under
federal law for this proposal.
