According to Chaz Miller, Director of State Programs at the National Solid Wastes Management Association, America's very first federal solid waste law, 1965's Solid Waste Disposal Act--itself an amendment to the original Clean Air Act--didn't even mention recycling. "Eleven years later, Congress passed the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), which remains the cornerstone of federal solid waste and recycling legislation," reports Miller. RCRA abolished open dumps and required the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to create guidelines for solid waste disposal and regulations for hazardous waste management, but had little to say about recycling except to call for an increase in federal purchases of products made with recycled content. The EPA also published manuals and workshops on implementing curbside recycling programs, although funding for such programs dried up by 1981. Nevertheless, the seed had taken root. Pioneering programs in Massachusetts and elsewhere led to the development of curbside recycling programs in more than 600 municipalities throughout the U.S.--mostly in the Northeast and on the West Coast--by the mid-1980s. In addition, 10 states introduced "bottle bill" laws to encourage recycling of beer and soft drink containers. Two states, Rhode Island and New Jersey, both being small, densely populated and short on landfill space, implemented comprehensive approaches to recycling. They began requiring local jurisdictions to pick-up residents' and businesses' paper, metal and glass, and helped towns and cities set-up systems for pick-up, sorting and materials recovery. Most of the 8,600-plus municipal recycling programs in existence today are modeled on these early efforts. Just a few decades ago, Americans recycled less than 10 percent of their solid waste. MuRi-material and curbside collection programs were non- existent, paper was only collected sporadically when a local scout troop or similar group organized a paper drive, and family-owned scrap dealers would occasionally November 24, 2010 buy paper and metal scrap based on limited market demand for additional raw materials. Today, the EPA estimates that Americans recycle some 32 percent of the 350 million tons of refuse theygenerate annually. While it still has no federal platform for doing so, the EPA, through its Resource Conservation Challenge program, is pushing for Americans to up that rate. Forty-two states now have their own recycling or waste diversion goals, and 18 are trying to divert upwards of half their waste via recycling or composting.

They are a group deeply committed to their hometowns, and they grow much more than corn, soybeans or cotton. They are America's farmers, and they are growing their communities. These dedicated farmers are 'making a difference thanks in part to a program from Monsanto Fund called America's Farmers Grow Communities. This program provides farmers with a chance to win $2,500 for their favorite local nonprofit organization. For Iowa farmer Jerry Varenhorst, his rural community has been "a great place to live and raise a family." Varenhorst farms 600 acres of corn and soybeans on his family operation in Le Mars, Iowa. He was'named the Plymouth County, Iowa, winner for a pilot program. "1 chose the Good Samaritan Society, a nursing home facility where many local retired farmers are residents, including my father," Varenhorst says. "We need to remember that these retired farmers were the ones supporting our groups when we were younger, and Air Conditioning and Heating Borrego, Cuyamaca, Escondido, Julian, .Ocotillo, Palomar Mountain, Ramona,  d Ranchita, Santa Ysabel, Warner Springs they shouldn't be forgotten," he says. "After all, one day I will be a retired farmer, too." Third-generation family farmer Allen Berryman, winner from Hobbsville, N.C., elected to direct his prize to the FFA youth agriculture organization. "1 chose the Chowan County FFA chapter because my 17-year-old daughter, Emily, is the local secretary,!' he says. "The FFA has done so much good for my daughter and she absolutely loves it. Because of it, she has been able to travel to a lot of different places and meet new people." The chapter plans on using the funds to help students pay their FFA dues, which have gone up in recent years. Now farmers in more than 1,200 counties across 38 states will be able to help grow their communities by more than $3 million. Eligible farmers can sign up online at www.growcommunities. cam or call (877) 267-3332 until Dec. 31, 2010. Farmers age 21 and over whp are actively engaged in farming a minimum of 250 acres of corn, soybeans and/ or cotton or 40 acres of open- field vegetables or at least 10 acres of tomatoes, peppers and/ or cucumbers grown in protected culture are eligible. One winner will be randomly selected for each eligible county. As a bonus for each eligible farmer who signs up, Monsanto Fund will also donate $1 to the United Way to help fight hunger in their community. "Our rural communities are the heart of America," says Deborah Patterson, president of the Monsaqto Fund. "We believe in rural America, and we want to help these dedicated farmers continue to grow their local communities."
