USA Hauling & Recycling and All American Waste were the proud major sponsors of the South Windsor Rotary Club Golf Tournament, which was held to benefit the South Windsor Veteran’s Memorial Wall.
Ralph Mosher, a U.S. Air Force Veteran, a 40 year member of the Rotary Club and a 15 year sales representative for USA Hauling & Recycling, was given the privilege and honor of being the Tournament Chairman.
In today’s world, when our country faces so many threats to our way of life and even to our existence, it is particularly poignant to remember, honor, and pay tribute to all veterans. Keep in mind our veterans are family, neighbors, and other Americans going back to the beginning of our country. We owe our deepest gratitude to all of those people.
It was President Harry S. Truman who said, “Our debt to the heroic men and valiant women in the service of our country can never be repaid.” America should never forget their sacrifices. “Freedom is never free!”

BRIDGEWATER – Over 54 weeks, Bridgewater’s pilot curbside composting program collected 22.5 tons of material from 147 participants. The program, which was created by Housatonic Resource Recovery Authority Director Jen Iannucci, is the first of its kind in the state.
Iannucci, a Bridgewater resident, said she got the idea after a meeting with the state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection to talk about waste management.
“I was scratching my head over why so much of the conversion was about single stream recycling.” Iannucci said, “Thirty-two percent of our waste stream is organic material.”
