Recycle for the Holidays!

Start 2019 off right with recycling! We’ll take those holiday cards and trees off your hands and make sure they don’t end up in the landfill.

RECYCLE YOUR CHRISTMAS CARDS:

You can bring in your old Christmas cards to the Pala Administration Lobby.  There’s a red wrapped box by the downstairs front desk where you can drop off your cards.  We donate all cards to the children of St. Jude’s Ranch for Children for arts and crafts.

Pala Environmental Department will remove any writing/names/information from each card before sending them, so you do not have to worry about privacy (or you can do so before dropping off your cards).

Where:  Pala Administration Lobby; Pala Environmental Department Office

                When: between now & the end of January

 RECYCLE YOUR USED GIFT CARDS (leftover after you use your Christmas presents):

After you use up all of those Christmas gift cards you received this holiday season, remember that they can be recycled.  This also includes old library/ID cards, etc.

Where:  Pala Environmental Dept.

                When: anytime

RECYCLE YOUR CHRISTMAS TREES:

If you live on the reservation, you can recycle your Christmas trees for free by leaving them out on trash days (next to your trash cans) or bringing them to the Pala Transfer Station.

Tribal Services will collect Christmas trees during regular pick-up times for the first 2 weeks of January.

Where:  Pala Transfer Station or curbside, next to your trash cans

                When: between now & the middle of January

 If you do not live in Pala, check this website for the best way to recycle your trees.

Pala’s Annual Water Quality Report

Every year, all public waters supply systems must develop and send out a CCR (Consumer Confidence Report), which describes the water quality of their system’s tap water. This report must be delivered by June 30th of each year. The report covers Pala’s drinking (tap) water quality from January 1st, 2017 to December 31st, 2017. We had no violations last year, as you can see from the chart on pages 4 through 7. Click here to access the report, which is posted on the Pala tribe website. You can also find it in the Documents section of the Pala website.

Also, if you live outside of Pala, look for your own CCR’s either in your water billing statements or on your water district’s website (see below for maps of other local water districts in case you are unsure of the district you live in). If anyone wants help finding/reading the results of their own water district, feel free to come by the Pala Environmental Department office in the Administration Building and we will be glad to help you find and read your own CCR.

If you have any questions about Pala’s water quality, please feel free to call or email our water quality specialist, Heidi Brow, at 760-891-3514 or hbrow@palatribe.com.
