74e Otherwen SIXTY-SEVENTH YEAR NUMBER 24 SALINE, WASHTENAW COUNTY, MICHIGAN THURSDAY, MARCH 16, 1950--TVE CENTS PER COPY $2.50 PER YEAR IN ADVANCE What Price Civilization? The Garbage Man Goeth! Thelma Vonderschmidt, basketball queen of the Jasper (Ind.) state champions, demonstrates to Carl Vogel, town garbage collector, how the garbage disposer will work when it takes his place next August 1. Town council voted to eliminate food wastes electrically by installing G-E disposers in householders' sinks when garbage collectors indicated they would not renew contract. General Electric officials said Jasper is the first town in the world to adopt this method of deaiing with the garbage problem. JASPER, IND. — The garbage man got his walking papers in Jasper today. Henceforth, the garbage will be disposed of electrically. The city council of this southern Indiana town of 6800 persons voted last week to suspend all municipal garbage collections after August 1 and accepted a bid to install General Electric garbage disposers in the sinks of Jasper householders. The disposers shred food wastes into small particles which are flushed down the drain and carried away through the regular sewage lines. At the same time the council passed an ordinance forbidding the storage of garbage outside homes within the city limits. By this action, General Electric officials said, Jasper becomes the first municipality in the world to adopt the disposer as a substitute for the garbage^ can and collection truck. '": Mayor Herbert Thyen and the city council "began to explore the possibilities of the water-borne disposal of food wastes through the sewer system about a year and a half ago when the present private garbage collectors indicated that they did not wish to renew their contract. With the help of a firm of engineering consultants and the aid of data submitted by interested manufacturers they gathered enough definite information to go to the citizenry with an informal poll last summer and 60 per cent registered their approval. Early <in December, interested disposer manufacturers submitted bids and demonstrated their machines before the city council. The G-E disposer offered by the General Electric Supply Corporation of Louisville, Ky. was chosen for installation. Since a majority of the householders have signed up the council passed the necessary legislation for the contract to be signed. Citizens who have not yet filed applications will have until June 1 to get in their orders. Under the Jasper plan, each individual householder will buy his disposer from the city. Mayor Thyen estimated that the mass installation of disposers will save Jasper $13,000 annually in wages and equipment charges for garbage collection and "by eliminating the garbage can — a breeding place for flies and rodents and therefore of disease— will make Jasper a healthier place in which to live." [Washtenaw county is working on a project for county-wide garbage disposal at some central point to which all municipalities will toe required to haul their garbage for burial. It is proposed that a great trench be dumped and immediately covered by a bulldozer or other mechanical device. It appears that the practice which is followed in Saline and in other cities and villages in the county is unsanitary and that the county health department will ban it. Garbage is collected at stated intervals, from house to house, and the garbage collector usually supplements the income which he derives from the city by feeding the garbage to a pen« of hogs. It is claimed that the site of the hog feeding operations is a great -breeding, place for flies and hence ^ a breeding place for disease. It 's generally agreed that there is small profit in feeding garbage to hogs, and in the case of Saline there would be no collections made if the city did not pay $1200 a year on top for its -collection. Garbage disposal in any event is going to cost the city plenty and in the .event the city is compelled to conform to the county plan of collecting and carting to some distant dump, the cost will be considerably higher than at present. Saline will be compelled in the near future to decide upon a plan different than the one now in operation. The garbage-hog farms are sure to toe liquidated by health and sanitary agencies. The town of Jasper, Indiana, faced the same problem and solved it with the installation of garbage disposers in the places of origin—in the homes. An accompanying article under the caption "The Garbage Man Goeth," is of especial interest at this time. Fresh Air Camp Director Speaker At Study Club William C.
