Long [SAFETY SENSE t Lawn And Garden When it comes to prepar- ing for gardening safety, your good sense should tell you: don't wait! That's what experts at the Outdoor Power Equipment Institute recommend when it comes to servicing your lawn mowers, edgers, tillers and shredder grinders. There's no sense waiting until summer before checking equipment for broken parts, rust, general breakage or mal- function. Now's. the time to take a good lock at motors and parts and take them into the shop if necessary. Read your owner's manual for a maintenance and opera- tions refresher course! Then, you can spring into action with safe and effective power equipment for a beau- tiful lawn and garden all summer long!

Bags of shredded pa are then transported to job sites throughout the state where they are mixed latex, water, seed and fertilizer. ::' SPRAYING PAPER - Pulped waste paper is distributed by a Department Highways hydro-seeder over an eroded section of land in Kanawha County. a few days, grass will be growing. Waste paper is helping grass grow along roads in West Virginia. Through a process developed by technicians at the Departmen of Highways. about half a ton of scrap paper is shredded into confetti. combined with approximately 20 gallons of a latex compound to help it disperse more evenly in a slurry, and mixed with water, seed and fertilizer.

Highway Commissioner W.Si Ritchie, lr. notes that the waste pape mulching program, under the Depart, ment's General Services Division currently uses approximately one and one-half tons of paper eacli week--paper which was destined for a sanitary landfill. While some waste paper from the State Capitol Comple: is sold for recycling purposes, Ritchie points out that "The waste paper i much more valuable to us as a mulcl material. With equipment designed t produce a large volume of shreddedl paper, we eventually anticipate, utilizing all waste paper from the! complex in the mulching program. Disposal of waste paper is a growing I problem for everyone and the DOH: system can serve to alleviate the need! for additional landfill areas." i The Commissioner cited the Department's environmental research! group in the development of the waste' paper mulching program. A study group of employees from variogs divisions, it takes its name, RE'E, from its goal of "Returning Energy madi Useful Salvage to the Economy," : Says Ritchie: "Waste paper isie:i small part of the overall probleni: of solid wastes. While our agencisl devoted to constructing and maintain-i ing roads, we find it perfyi compatible to concern ourselves v?dhi these environmental 'problems. The! entire thrust of REUSE is to ni products long considered 'wastes' io! products which can be utilized bythe i Department of Highways."  Ritchie notes that REUSE is ao conducting a pilot oil recoy program, a scrap steel reco'ey program in cooperation with the REAP section and a project which will utilize scrap tires for paving.
